Wiki Wiki What??

Parallel Play or Collaboration–Leveraging the Wiki Platform for High Quality Work is an overview of everything you can do on a wiki.It was hard to watch because it showed someone working on a wiki, but it was blurry and hard to see what she was acctually doing. I do not have nor do i use a wiki, but I think they would be a good resource to use within a classroom. I realize that it is online resources that students now can identify with in a world that is going a great speeds due to technology.
I was not completely in the generation of technology. I grew up having an computer and an E-mail account but I did not use the Internet much. Now as I am learning to use the Internet in more and different ways, I am realizing that I am behind in the knowledge that kids now have of the Internet. Wiki's are ways for students to do things on their level of work.
To help my students learn at the rate that technology is going it might be helpful to make a wiki for my students to use in ways that they can learn in a collaborative way.


  1. I totally agree with you that if you haven't grown up with technology it can be sort of overwhelming at first but I think for everyone getting familiar with technology is something that will help everyone since we are becoming a technology generation

  2. It's definitely the case that we all need to jump into this "river" of information and learn to swim effectively in it. Your comments about being overwhelmed are common I've found. The only way to learn to swim is to get wet and in the water! Hopefully our class activities have helped you get more comfortable using technology tools to communicate, create and collaborate.
