Wikis in the Classroom


Workshop Description:
A Wiki is a group of easy-to-create web pages with “edit” buttons on them. Wikis are versatile tools: you can use them to create a Web site where you control the content, or they can be collaborative tools, as a platform for students to share information and ideas.

With simple editing tools, you can add links, graphics, videos, slides hows, and other media to a Wiki. You can also create accounts for your students so they can participate. In this workshop, you will learn to create a Wiki, add a variety of content, and explore classroom applications.

Workshop Credit Information
In order to receive 1 in-service credit you must attend three, three-hour workshops for a total of 9 hours of technology
professional development and complete the optional project assignment. Participants receive 1 PDP for each hour of attendance at a workshop. In order for PDPs to be recognized by the state, a teacher must have 10 PDPs on the same topic. This means that for recertification, to submit your PDPs for technology you must have at least 10. PDPs from these workshops can be combined with PDPs from other technology courses you have taken to meet the 10 hour requirement.
