What is a wiki?
  • This video from CommonCraft explains it best

  • TeacherTube link to this video.

  • The word "wiki" and "website" are interchangeable. Wikis do not require any special software or programming knowledge, and the user can give editing privileges to other users, unlike a traditional website.


What can I do with a wiki?
  • Plan and organize an event, a class, an assignment

  • Collaborate on a project with someone from across the hall, across the street or across the globe

  • Provide information to parents and community

  • Showcase your classroom and student projects (careful when using pictures of students)

  • Anything you want
