Coffee Talk Wiki

Coffee Talk Wiki                 

 

Don't forget about the Summer Reading Program at the Avon-Washington Township Public Library.  We'll here about it during 6th period on Thursday, May 8 in the Media Center.

 

 

wikiwelcome.wav - Click here for directions on to how to use the wiki (it takes a little while to open...please be patient).

 


 

“Be an explorer...read, surf the internet, visit customers, enjoy arts, watch children play...do anything to prevent yourself from becoming a prisoner of your knowledge, experience, and current view of the world.” - Charles Thompson

 

This wiki is open to anyone at Avon High School who is interested in discussing books, authors and any kind of reading.  It is a collaborative forum for you -- please feel free to add to this ongoing work.

 

See Mrs. Young in the Media Center for the invite key (password) to be able to collaborate on this wiki.

 

 


 

 

 

What is a wiki anyway?

 

We all know what Wikipedia looks like and even though we've been told not to use it, sometimes we still fall back into old habits.  Now is your chance to design a Wikipedia-like page by editing this Coffee Talk Wiki.  Go ahead and take a look at Wikipedia right now (Don't be afraid...Mrs. Young says it's OK!).  What things do you notice about the main page?  What types of information are included?

 

You should especially notice:

 

  • links to:
    • definitions of words
    • other websites
    • similar subjects
  • pictures
  • words
  • citations

 

 Recommendations

 

  • Save frequently.  I've learned from experience, so please take my word for it.
  • You will have full access to the wiki, so please make certain that you don't change things that you aren't supposed to!
  • Cite everything...pictures, graphics, anything you take from anyone else.  I know it isn't fun, but we want to make certain that we don't steal information from others (otherwise known as plagiarism).
  • In order to edit pages, you will need to log in, put your first name and last initial (I would be Robyn Y.) and include your email address.
  • When you log in, click off of "Notify me of changes."
  • Be creative!  This is something new and you can do anything you want with it.  If you aren't sure if it is OK, just ask.

 

 

Helpful Hints -- this provides you with information on how to edit the wiki.
