Get your own wiki 

  1. Decide if you need a wiki or a blog. Think about how you want to interact with your students online.  Do you want a collaborative site or a space to post information and share resources? Or both!
  2. Create a basic wiki at
  3. Inform your IT department that you created a wiki and s/he will upgrade your site immediatly!

Lesson One Homework

  1. Now that you have a wiki, add a link to your new workspace to our district directory.
  2. Create a new page on your workspace.  Name your page with your first name and last initial.  This will be your training page for the rest of this tutorial.  To make sure you can always find your page, click the star on the upper right hand corner.
  3. Once you have a new page, answer the following questions.


Remember:  These are LIVE wikis in a REAL classroom.  Please do not leave a comment or request editing access

  • Is this site instructional or collaborative?
  • How were students encouraged to participate (hint: look at the 'navigator' to see what folders there are).

  • How did Mrs. J get her students involved on the workspace?
  • Is this space instructional or collaborative?
  • What important class information does Mrs. J post to her wiki.  Does this help parents, students or both?
  • How is this wiki different from a collaborative wiki? What purpose does this site serve?
  • Why is this wiki useful to students?
  • How did this teacher outline his homework assignents and make them accessible to his students?
