Presenter: Donald Cram and Michelle Bishop
Room: CC 206
Get started, or improve your skills, in contributing to Wikipedia in your own personal teaching or research areas, and learn about the use of Wikipedia or WikiBooks for student research and writing assignments utilizing Penfield Library or other resources. Wikipedia or WikiBook writing can provide students--and teachers and researchers!--with valuable experience and continuing feedback, far beyond the feedback a single grader or just a few reviewers can provide, and Penfield Library's resources are a great start. In the session we will build a new Wikipedia article together--probably on the history of Oswego's hosting of Jewish refugees at Fort Ontario during World War II, the subject of Oswego's Safe Haven Museum--that will subsequently appear on Wikipedia's front page and receive thousands of views. We will use material from Penfield Library's Safe Haven collection. Tips and handouts on leading useful student assignment projects in Wikipedia or WikiBooks will be shared and discussed. The WikiMedia Foundations' programs to support teachers' and researchers' use of Wikipedia will be introduced. You may add this to your Google calendar by clicking here:
