Application in educational context

Has this learning scenario already been practiced in lessons? Give examples of the learning scenario in use:

  • Add a reference link. It could be a reference to the performed lesson or a an evaluation of the performed lesson
  • Name of school or institution? 
  • Number of students?
  • Relevant contact persons

A collection of curriculums for Swedish elementary schools and high school, by HÃ¥kan Elderstig
Targeted educational sector:
  1. primary and secondary education
  2. higher education
  3. professional training
  4. adult training
teachers in primary and secondary education 
Learners' special characteristics e.g. students:
  • who are deaf
  • from rural areas
  • detached from the labor market 
  • with exquisite digital skills

Learning subject/ field e.g.
  • Wikipedia
  • English
  • Physics

Specific educational objectives e.g. make students acquire:
  • writing skills
  • basic knowledge on Roman toponyms and the Celtic culture
  • source criticism
  • cooperation skills

Narrative/sequential description of the learning activities (Important! Could be a longer text)
Learning resources involved e.g.
  • books
  • online resource like wiki site to acquire knowledge from, e.g.
    • Wikipedia
    • Wikimedia Commons 
    • Ekopedia  
    • JurisPedia
  • search engines

Wiki application to create content (not to confuse with "Learning resources involved") Which wiki software do the students use to create content, that is, writing and collaborating? Wiki software could for example mean:
  • Stand-alone wiki application like:
    • MediaWiki (which is used for Wikimedia projects like Wikipedia, Wiktionary etc)
    • DokuWiki
    • FosWiki
    • XWiki
  • Wikifarm application like:
    • Wikispaces
    • PBWorks
    • Wikidot
    • Referata
    • Wikia

Clarification: wiki application versus wiki online learning resource 

You can use Wikipedia both as a learning resource to aquire knowledge from, but also as a working tool where you do your assignment (if students have user accounts on Wikipedia and the assignment for example is to improve articles on Wikipedia). Then Wikipedia is the learning resource and MediaWiki (which Wikipedia is built upon) is used as a wiki application to create content.

Another option is to use Wikipedia as a learning resource but for example Wikispaces as a working tool for the class where they report their findings about Wikipedia. Then Wikipedia is the learning resource and Wikispaces is used as a wiki application to create content.

 

Local MediaWiki installation

 

Other ICT applications involved e.g. standard computing programs like
  • spreadsheets
  • graphics software
 
Infrastructure / equipment e.g.
  • Internet connection
  • microphone
  • camera
 
Prerequisite competences e.g. to be familiar with
  • English writing
  • linear algebra
 
Evaluation approach e.g.
  • peer-to-peer assessment
  • test (teacher evaluate) 
  • revision tracking
  • group assessment

Typical learning time e.g.
  • How many sessions? 
  • How long sessions? 
 
Temporal mode "Synchronous interaction" and / or "Asynchronous interaction"  
Typical learning location e.g.
  • Classroom with computers
