What is a wiki?

A wiki is a website that can be created and edited by numerous people. In this case, your class is going to create a wiki about the Nine Elements of Digital Citizenship. There are nine pages which have been created but contain no content. Each group of 2-3 students below has been assigned to work on a specific page.

You can find additional information about your assigned element here:

Digital Citizenship
Digital Citizenship: Addressing Appropriate Technology Behavior
Digiteen Wiki

With the students in your group, you need to fill your blank page with attractive and informative content about your assigned elements of digital citizenship.

Include at least ALL the following elements on your wiki page:

  1. A definition of your element

  2. At least one picture that represents the element. You may (and probably should) include additional pictures as well. -- Be creative with this; what do you think of when you hear the definition?

  3. Some real life examples of the element: how does it affect students and why does it matter?

  4. One or more appropriate videos (either hyperlinked or embedded).

  5. Your suggestions: how can we encourage teens to take this particular issue seriously?

  6. Proper grammar, spelling, punctuation, and capitalization.

I'm sorry I'm not here to help you. Just do your very best and help each other out. If you aren't tech savvy, ask a neighbor who is. I can't wait to see what you can put together in my absence.
