What is a wiki?

Wikipedia is one wiki you might be familiar with. Think of this wiki as a shared online whiteboard. Your entire class can share information using this wiki, making your research accessible to everyone. Notice how you can add comments to a page under the discussion tab, see what people have changed under the history tab, and edit the text. Check out the sample wiki entry below. Click on the links below under the heading "Gallery of Greats" to arrive at the relevant pages for the individual film directors.

Safety & Decorum

Students will be invited by email to participate in this wiki by the librarian or teacher. Only members of the wiki can view the pages and make edits. You must log in using a recognizable "handle" (No individual or identifiable profiles will be available on tihs wiki). All wiki content is subject to teacher approval and/or deletion. Avoid specific comments about locations, schedules, or contact info. No student may edit or delete the work of another without including a written explanation for the changes in the discussion tab. All rules of the school and classroom will transfer to this virtual extension of the classroom. Uncited use of copyrighted material in wiki postings will not be allowed.
