Task 4: Wiki Explorations


Open the file attachment and use as a guide as you explore some wiki sites for collaborative and interactive features.

Make note of some that might be useful and beneficial for your teaching. The handout is also included in the Participant Handbook if you prefer to take notes by hand. Each group will present their findings to the others.


Sample Wiki sites:

Task 5: Discussion: 


What are some ways we can move from what we do in the classroom to an online collaborative learning environment afforded through Wikis? Let's brainstorm based on our discoveries in Component 1.




Wrap Up:  


Now that you have "experienced some interactive and collaborative activities using Wikis, it's time to put your experiences into practice and create your own Wiki site!  We are here to help you every step of the way.
