ARTICLE REQUIREMENTS

  • Your wiki article is to be short, but substantive. Give it some meat. Say something useful. Your article for our wiki is not to be a list.
  • Don't summarize a selection of items you found online. You can't write something meaningful if you create a list and write a couple of sentences about each list item.
  • Contribute new material about education/learning related issues concerning 'language barriers andsocial media'.
  • Focus your article. Write 200 - 400 words about it.
  • You do not have to use APA formatting, but you must clearly credit work that is not your own.
  1. Choose ONE learning challenge and ONE social media technique. (for example an ELL and SnapChat, or ESL and Podcasts)
    a. CHOOSE ONE learning challenge: either English Language Learners or English as a Second Language.
    b. CHOOSE ONE social media technique, for example: Pinterest, wikis, social networking, #tagging, VoiceThread, geotagging, Twitter, Tumblr, etc.
  2. Describe why a language learner would benefit from using the social media that you selected.
  3. Describe the barriers that the language learner would face trying to use the social media you selected.
  4. Describe how the language learner could get beyond the barriers. This may involve technology, or assistance from another student, the teacher or an assistant.
  5. Credit your information source(s).
  6. Tag your article with descriptive key words so that it will show up in the tag cloud below.
  7. Be sure to link your contribution in the contributor's list - so that your work can be graded. See the end of the demo on the home page for how to do so.


Check the cloud tag below to see if your topic (i.e. the learning challenge and social media you chose) is already in the wiki. If it is, you may expand the topic by writing 200 - 400 words that add new material to the topic.
