Example One:


CC_wiki_just_for_fun_page.png


http://chinesecinderellahy.wikispaces.com/ (active link to the Chinese Cinderella 'task' wiki)
This example above was used to guide year 7 students studying 'Chinese Cinderella' by Adeline Yen Mah.
From this wiki, students were able to view a model on which to base their own wikis. Students were also able to view details of a number of the tasks they were expected to complete as part of their text study unit. Students had access to this site at any time and anywhere they had access to the Internet. This enabled students to work at their ability level and pace.


Example Two:

http://chinesecinderella1hy.wikispaces.com/The+Yen+Family+Tree Year 7 English class - sample page from group one. Students were required to use either Inspiration, Word or another concept mapping tool to create a diagram showing the Yen family tree. Students then needed to learn how to save their family tree and upload it to their wiki.

Example Three:

Example Four:

http://chinesecinderella3hy.wikispaces.com/Chapter+Summaries Year 7 English class - sample page from group three. Group three provided very clear chapter summaries as can be seen in the above example.


Example Five:

http://chinesecinderella4hy.wikispaces.com/Cinderella+Stories Year 7 English class - sample page from group four. For this task, students were required to research some other 'Cinderella' stories and to create a table in their wiki in order to outline comparisons. As a result of this task, students learned how to work with tables in wikis.
