Want to learn more about using and even creating Wikis?
From the just delivered WEMA (Wisconsin Educational Media Association) online newsletter:
Explore the World of Wikis via Why Wikis — a very helpful resource – about WikiPedia and Wikis from the perspective of an authoritative expert, John Hubbard – staff member at U of Wisconsin-Milwaukee Libraries.
Hubbard has prepared a free online video course covering the benefits and disadvantages of the Wiki format.
This is an interesting and useful resource for all Wisconsin educators – higher ed and PreK-12 who are interested in Wikis and use of Wikipedia!
LMC Directors and educators using Wikipedia and Wikis please share your input!
How are you helping your students understand and evaluate information found on WikiPedia? How are you using Wikis in your classroom?
A surprize is awaiting the first 10 WI DEN and visiting guests who do!
