Wiki Expectations

Classroom Wiki Expectations


Learning together and collaborating on things are very important to our classroom. Getting the opportunity to use a wiki as part of our classroom instruction and collaboration is a priviledge and one that should not be taken advantage of. In order to be able use this resource to it's full potential and enjoyment, there are a few expectations and guidelines that should be followed while working.

Keep safe: Never post your personal information or information about someone else. Keep things like ages, addresses, phone numbers, names of towns, or even places we work off the Internet.


Be Truthful and Honest: Make sure that anything you add is accurate and true. The benefit of using a wiki is being able to read the things that are on there and gather or share information. No one wants to get incorrect or false information.


When working with and collaborating on our wiki pages, make sure that you are respectful of others pages and do not delete or edit any pages other than your own or a collaborative page. We need to able to trust each other when working on such a group effort.


Since all of you are writers on the wiki, you have the ability to leave comments on other users pages. Comments should be meaningful and thoughtful to the page owner. Be respectful of people's work and leave appropriate comments on a person's page of work or even suggestions and sometimes a question.

Leaving comments such as "hi", "sup", "heeeeellllllooooo" or anything similar are not thoughtful comments and will be deleted.

The comment boxes are NOT chat rooms.


Stealing Locks.  Given the collaborative nature of a wiki we want to establish some "ground rules" concerning Stealing Locks when editing pages. 

  • If you attempt to edit a page & the textbox notifies you that the page is being actively edited by another member of the wiki community then take a 5 minute break to allow that person to complete their editing tasks.

  • Never steal a lock unless the wiki "tells" me that the page has not been edited for 5 minutes. Never steal a lock when someone is actively editing. 

  • This means that you will want to save your page frequently if it is one that others are likely to edit.



*Guidelines adapted from PBwiki's Etiquette for Students
