    Overview and Guidelines for use at Qatar Academy
    A wiki is a group of web pages that allows users to individually or collaboratively publish information to the web. It's features include a place for discussion on each page, being able to track all edits through the history tab, being able to add hyperlinks, multimedia and embed widgets from other Web 2.0 applications e.g. slideshare.net. A wiki can be private, protected or public and each of these levels dictates the ability to view the website and the access an Internet user may have. A private or protected wiki cannot be edited by a non-member of that wiki and membership is either by invitation and/or request. A private wiki cannot be seen by any non-member.

    At Qatar Academy we have a Private Label account at www.qataracademy.wikispaces.net. This allows us to create an unlimited number of wikis for teacher and student use. All members of the school community will at some time come in contact with one or more of the wikis. Many students will have their own wiki and use this for things such as their digital portfolio, collaborative class work and global project communication. Many teachers will develop class websites and create wiki-centric, online curriculum websites with the purpose of enhancing communication between themselves and their students. These will provide a resource for study and homework outlines as well as a place for students to submit some forms of work for review (peer and self) and assessment (formative and summative).
