Curate Your Own Wiki-Guide with the Wikipedia Book Create Tool

Help:Books - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

There are almost no limits when creating books from Wikipedia content. A good book focuses on a certain topic and covers it as well as possible. A meaningful title helps other users to have the correct expectation regarding the content of a book.

Robin Good's insight:

 

 

Few people know that it is actually possible to curate Wikipedia content into custom print books or PDF / OpenDocument ebooks that contain exactly the content you want in the order you specify.

 

Once you are logged into Wikipedia you simply activate the Book Creator Tool and then, from that moment on, everytime you visit a Wikipedia page you can click and add it to your curated Wiki-Book.

 

There is also a dedicated wiki page where you can manage the pages you have collected and you can reorganized and sort them any way you want, eliminating the pages you don't need.

 

Unfortunately there is no integrated way to edit and further customize the content of those pages for your own use.

 

PDF versions are freely downloadable by anyone, print book versions are paid.

 

N.B.: The price for print books depends on the number of pages, starting with US$ 7.90 for books up to 100 pages. 10% of the gross sales price goes to the Wikimedia Foundation. Books are perfect bound, printed in the dimensions 8.5 inch x 5.5 inch (216 mm x 140 mm) and contain a table of contents, your chapters and articles, licensing information next to an index.

 

More info about printed versions: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Help:Books/Frequently_Asked_Questions ;

 

Free to use.

It's worth keeping in mind that some 'publishers' try to sell books based entirely on Wikipedia content.

Teacher research: what’s the point?

Teacher research: what’s the point? | Research on Impacting Student Learning in Secondary Settings | Scoop.it

There are two possible ‘research systems’ we might nurture – research undertaken by research professionals, and research undertaken by teachers. Each has the potential to improve our schools. But they will be the most effective when they function in parallel, successfully engaging with one another like cogs in a well-oiled machine.

Interesting article on research and action research.

Edward Phiri's curator insight, October 29, 2013 6:00 AM

Research undertaken by teachers is qualitative research and it is meant mainly to improve practice. It is Action research as it is aimed at solving a problem that a teacher would have identified.
