The DRC is organizing an edit-a-thon for the DRC Wiki at Computers and Writing 2015. We’ll be sitting at a Sweetland Digital Rhetoric Collaborative table (Jarvis Science Hall Concourse) throughout the conference and presenting in session E2.

If you want hands-on experience editing a wiki or an opportunity to examine classroom wiki activities, consider taking part in the DRC Wiki’s edit-a-thon during the Computers and Writing 2015 conference.

How To Play 

  1. Stop by our table (Jarvis Science Hall Concourse) to pick up a GameSheet DRC Wiki Handout and . The Handout provides instructions for registering and contributing to the DRC Wiki. The GameSheet (see below) helps you keep track of your edits and other “quests.” For every numbered task completed (e.g. “3. Make your first edit”), you’ll place a sticker on the GameSheet.
  2. Get busy editing! See how many tasks you can get through during the conference.
  3. Stop back at our Table to check in with your completed GameSheet. Score prizes made from upcycled tech: Computer Bug Pins, Computer Key Bracelets, Floppy Disk Pen Holder, and more.

Come see us at Computers and Writing 2015! We look forward to meeting you–at our table or in our session!
