Wikis are an incredible tool especially when teaching students who these days thrive off technology. Wiki is a remarkable web page used to store interesting information of any person’s choice! Wiki can be used by anyone with access to the internet and can be changed and edited by anyone in the world. (Leuf & Cunningham, 2001)
Here is a link to a Wiki that I created. http://3rstrategy.wetpaint.com/
Wiki can definitely be a useful tool in the classroom. Students can go onto a Wiki page the learning manager has created and complete certain tasks, assignments, cool games and much more.
Wiki is a new and great way to engage learners!
