How can teachers use wikis in the classroom??

Here’s a “Quick List” of ideas!

Use wikis for…

  • Webquests
  • Collaborative projects
  • Coauthoring of essays or reports
  • Interactive games (e.g., “what would you do next…” games)
  • Planning for a class event (e.g., a party, a festival, or a celebration)
  • Sign-up sheets for events
  • Quick and easy Web sites with links and resources
  • Online study communities
  • A place to post and share student work (e.g., scanned art images and writing)

Ideas by Grade Level Clusters

  • K-5: can be set up for different stories, pages for vocabulary, useful expressions, and grammatical structures
  • 6-8: teachers can use a wiki to create online course book by collaborating with students and teachers
  • 9-12: place for students to communicate in online discussions, upload links, videos, or images
