How to Publish Student Work is now in the Classroom 3-Minute Problem Solver series.
How can teachers publish student work to showcase it to family, friends, other students, and the school. Our presenter extraordinaire, Kim Munoz, will show you how to do just that in under three minutes in this video using Wikispaces.
A wiki is an editable webpage, and you may be most familiar with the term as it applies to the (in)famous Wikipedia, which is referenced by researchers and news organizations constantly. (You may be familiar with the hilarious comment from the fictional Michael Scott, the office manager in the TV series, The Office, where he said: “Wikipedia is the best thing ever. Anyone in the world can write anything they want about any subject. So you know you are getting the best possible information.”)
With Wikispaces, a great skill-based tool, students can publish their work directly to the website. You get started by creating a wiki and then you add pages of content. The teacher can then create areas within the wiki where students can add their own documents, videos, audios, or other files.
Once set up, you can make the wiki public so that other students, parents, and family members can see the student's work.
Wikispaces also helps students learn how to edit and manipulate webpages and other online content.
