Wikis: The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly

The Electric Educator

On Tuesday, October 6th, I will be leading a professional development workshop at my school on Wikis. One of the first things I will be doing with the teachers is having them view a 5-slide presentation on Good, Bad, and Ugly uses of wikis. I would appreciate feedback from those of you who are using wikis: 1. How have you seen wikis used effectively? What are common but ineffective uses of wikis? What are some downright bad uses of wikis?

More on Social Networking Guidelines for Educators

EdTechSandyK

One is a blog with several thoughtful comments, and the other a wiki that is being collaboratively created. A couple of months ago I posted ten social networking guidelines for educators that I had come up with in response to a request from colleagues in my district. Today I came across some more detailed guidelines in the making. A great amount of detail in both and much food for thought.

EdTechSandyK

Also, having never used a wiki before, I struggled to interpret just how I was supposed to use it to complete the collaborative tasks in Weeks 3 and 4.

NOTE: The post below is a reflection on my experiences in Lamar master''s degree course EDLD 5306 Concepts of Educational Technology. What outcomes had you envisioned for this course?
