We’re all familiar with wikis, even if we aren’t quite sure what they do.
In short, a wiki is a type of website or page on the web where others can easily change the text, edit it, or add to it.
A quick fact, the word ‘wiki’ doesn’t stand for anything, but was named after this bus in Hawaii. The creator of the first wiki thought after riding this bus that wiki was a good substitute for the word ‘quick’.
And, something we’re excited about, you can now add wikis to a blog on Edublogs!
What better way to show off what this can do than with a wiki?
So please visit our very first wiki on TheEdublogger.com – Ways to use wikis in the classroom.
Jump in and add your ideas if you’d like.
Try out the ‘discussion’ tab as well to start a conversation about the wiki.
You will also find a history tab which will let you review and roll back to previous versions if you’d like.
This particular wiki is open to the public and can be edited by anyone. However, on your own blog, you can choose to only allow it to be editable by those you choose – making it great to use with students.
If you want to try this out on your own, you can get a free blog WITH WIKIS here if you don’t have one already. 🙂
