Chapter 2 Summary

In Chapter 2, starting on page 13, A "Wiki" from, "What school leaders need to know about digital technology and social media," refers to the following definition provided by Wikipedia.  "A Wiki is a website that allows the easy creation and editing of any number of interlinked web pages via a web browser using a simplified markup language or a text editor." (Wikipedia, 2010)

A Wiki is a web site that allows the viewers to become participants. We can all edit a true Wiki site, not just the creator.

*remember when teachers told students, Don’t use Wikipedia as a resource! That’s because it is a Wiki site and it can be edited.

Why Use Them?

“Wikis can simplify educators’ work by holding common items together without requiring sophisticated programming knowledge.” (McLeod, Scott, & Chris Lehmann, 2010) For example, Wikis can help with planning a lesson, putting together different documents, organizing thoughts, and keeping a database and backup for later use. Teachers can use sites like Wikispaces and Wetpaint which offers Wikis for them to use at home and in the classroom for lessons. The book told us that what we can do with Wikis are almost limitless. Our imagination is the only thing that holds us back or helps us to construct masterpieces.

Wikis are easy to set up and use. Just click edit, and start typing. (EX)
