To really hone up your wiki skills, you will be participating in an Internet Treasure Hunt. This involves using your recently revised Google search skills to track down and add key components to your wiki page. Here's what you need to do in the time allocated. You will be working in pairs or a three to work on this task.

  • Start by making a New Page, giving it a team name title and adding it with a link to your Learning Area page.
  • Together, either on the same computer or separately, you need to search for the following items and add them to your wiki page.
