In my presentation “Get Wiki with It” today at EncycloMedia 2008 in Oklahoma City, session participants brainstormed different ways educators can and are using wikis to support learning inside and outside the classroom. This was our list:
1. Connect with parents through publishing student work
2. Homework groups with kids (ask questions)
3. Share lesson plans with other teachers and links
4. In lieu of a faculty meeting 🙂
5. Write a new school song collaboratively, brainstorm ideas
6. Put websites for articles students need to read, and then discuss it together online
7. Post homework assignments and makeup work for absent students
8. Schedules and calendars
9. Collaborative projects with other classrooms in the US or outside
10. Book reviews!
11. Science journaling
12. Study guides for the test
13. Science fair presentations
14. Collaboration to plan fundraisers or other activities
15. Diary of a science experiment
16. Literature response podcasting or video publishing
17. Book talks
18. Literature circle
19. RSS feeds for kid friendly publishing (let parents subscribe to updates)
20. Posting projects
For chronological publishing, like a regular journal or science experiment diary, I suggested a blog might work better than a wiki. But a wiki could still be used!
I’m about to publish the audio recording from this session as a podcast. This was a fun presentation to share! 🙂
