Notes for K12 Tutorials / Workshops

This K12 workshop will occur over a two month duration. The participants can work individually or in small groups (2-3 people). The content will be delivered online via these two methods;

  1. two four-hour sessions, and
  2. a hour a week for eigth weeks

The intention of these two methods is to provide the students with both a focused four-hour session to work through all the lessons and then provide weekly events to reinforce (and repeat) the learning to further deepen the developed skills. These two methods are not dependent upon each other. A student can choose to just participate in the two four-hour sessions or the eight weekly one-hour sessions. Participating in both sessions during the two month period will provide the deepest learning experience and allow opportunity for active learning as the students build their own wiki pages.

Three four-hours sessions

The idea here is to emerse ourselves and collaborate online. Four hours of wiki fun, learning and creating using the MediaWiki software.
