While looking at a variety of educational wikis, I found a site where a 5th grade class uses a wiki to embed a slideshow of each student's poetry. Students wrote a collection of poems and then used a site to upload the poetry so that each child’s collection was able to be embedded in the wiki in the form of a slideshow. What a great way to make it easy to share writing with classmates. Also, it’s a fantastic motivator to do your best work if you know it will be published online and viewed by others. Students take more pride in their work with a bigger audience. I particularly liked this idea because it seems a quick, easy way to get started with wikis. Students used the website http://www.docstoc.com/ to upload and embed their PowerPoints. Definitely take a look at this site! I already joined this website, because I want to complete the same poetry project in my class. Each year I have students complete poetry for slideshows, but this is a way to have all slideshows readily available for students to view at one time. Poetry PowerPoints Wiki Site
It's easy to embed these slideshows into a wiki, as you can see below.
