Creating Curriculum Collaboratively
What is a Wiki?
Wiki is Hawaiian for “quick”.

A wiki is a website that can be collaboratively edited by anyone who has access to it, allowing the wiki users to develop and share content on the site together whenever and wherever they are.

Let's Build Something Together
“Using wikis can promote genuinely collaborative environments. They can support transparent writing and editing, interdependence and teamwork among authors, public and civic engagement, and the continuous exchange of feedback on ideas. However, teaching with wikis can be difficult because they require students and teachers to reconsider their roles. For instance, students’ and teachers’ individual identities are subsumed by the collective. Moreover, the intellectual authority of peers is equivalent to that of the instructor or others who enter the process of collecting, editing, revising, and even deleting work.” – Gwen Solomon and Lynne Scrum Web 2.0 New Tools, New Schools ISTE 2007

Step 1: Think about the overall purpose for your wiki?
Who do you want to use it?
How do you want to use it?
What do you want to build together?
Step 2: Choose a free, student/teacher friendly site

Step 3: Organize and set up your site
Consider using your title page for your table of contents
Step 5: Consider how you want users to add/edit/access the site
Create step by step instructions/ or use a tutorial
Step 4: Invite your users (students/teachers/both)
Step 5: Let the learning begin!

Helpful Tips
1.) Create a record of usernames/passwords.
2.) Explain the “Steal the Lock” feature.
3.) Provide an example of what/how you want additions to look, such as a unified template/format, etc.
4.) Require users sign their contributions and site sources.
5.) Teach copyright procedures – explain how to paraphrase and insert links, instead of copy and paste.
6.) Create a rubric that helps define expectations.
7.) History Tab is your friend – it helps you see who did what, when.

do you have?
