Online archiving with Wiki

Jump to: navigation, search

Dear Friends:

With the hope that a month long forthcoming workshop in India on 'Folklore Fieldwork and online archiving with wiki' will be of special relevance to Wikieducators community and also to educators who are interested in framing projects around civic engagement and place- based learning, I have placed the workshop details in the newly created wikieducator page

Among other things the workshop also intends to explore ways of using socially created media and its contents for community work and for higher education. The preliminary pages you see on the link I have provided will be constantly updated before, during and after the workshop. We are also experimenting to see whether an online archive can be created with the use of wiki and be gifted to the communities we work with at end of the workshop.

We welcome suggestions from the Wikieducator community especially on the uses of wiki in archiving, and preserving oral traditions and folklore and their multi media field documentation. We will be happy to learn from you any case studies you might know of on using wiki to archive folklore materials according to the world views of communities concerned.

Please feel free to add contents you might consider relevant to the participants of the workshop and the educators who are dealing with similar concerns.

Looking forward to a good discussion

Yours truly,
