working with your wiki
Working With Your Wiki
  • The left side tools allow you to work through your page.

If you wish to create a NEW page, just click on NEW page. All editing, etc stays the same on each page.

Recent changes is a great way to track what is added to your page. (**more on this later)

Manage your space gives you control over your page.

manage space
Manage Space
  • The Manage Space page gives you four items to work with
    • About
      • This lets you know who controls your page, if you have any other people who can post (members), and also your page license.
    • Space Contents
      • Lets you see what pages you have created, files you have uploaded, statistics, import a blog, and backing up or exporting your page. (except for pages and files…this is advanced wikiness in my humble opinion!!) 
    • Space Promotion
      • Lets you brag about your page or post a wikispace image on your personal home page/email/ etc.
manage space1
Manage Space
  • The next area is pretty important…..
    • Space Settings
      • First of all – you can set the name, description and license.
        • The license area should be read carefully because it gives you control over what people can do with what is posted in your wiki.
      • The Look & Feel area gives you the ability to colorize your wiki to your liking. Also the layout and if you wish to add an image as your logo. Grins, and if you are brave (I am not) you can edit the wiki styles sheet.
      • Members & Permissions allows you to invite people to View And/Or Post (such as students, fellow teachers, etc)
      • Subscription – Double Check this area – you should have an ad-free site!!!
recent changes great tool
Recent Changes – Great Tool
  • This tool is available on the left side toolbar.
  • It allows you to track WHO has added data to your wiki.
    • Let’s pretend that you are using this wiki within your class and you invite each student to join – with a nickname of course.
    • And you assign a question to be answered on the wiki for homework.
    • This tool allows you to see WHO has posted and when.
some thoughts
Some Thoughts
  • If you wish, send an invite to technospud@gmail.com and I will be able to check out your wiki.
  • Wikispaces also has a TOUR you might wish to take at https://www.wikispaces.com/ (it has audio)
  • Don’t worry if you make a mistake on your WIKI – you can also Edit/Undo or just not save.
  • Check out the settings at the top right of your wiki to set some personal options.
  • Check out the HELP option if you get stuck or drop me an email.
  • Why should you have a wiki??
    • It’s a very easy to use online collaboration tool.
    • It can be used by YOU to share ideas with other teachers on ideas you want feedback on.
    • It can be used by YOUR STUDENTS to track their understanding on the subject you are teaching – (ie: character study in Charlotte’s Web, history lesson review, current events, etc.
    • It can be used by YOUR STAFF to track staff meetings, in-services, curriculum studies
    • It can be used by YOUR PARENTS to keep track of homework, of how their child is participating in online discussions, etc.
