    • marianaclaure.wikispaces.comHOMEWELCOME TO MY WIKI!What is a wiki?A wiki is a website on which the pages can be edited by the users as well as the creator of the website. The users canchange the content by adding or removing information, or editing the existing content.Benefits and goalsOne of the most powerful benefits of using wikis in language learning is as a collaborative tool. Potentially, everyone in agroup could work at changing and editing a document and work towards a final version of a particular text. A wiki couldallow your class to share notes. It could be a place where learners communicate with each other outside lessons. Thepremise here is that the students can learn from each other, and learn through their interactions with other groupmembers.How is a wiki different from a blog?A blog is essentially an online journal or diary, usually written by one person, which is added to regularly. Most blogsallow visitors to add comments, which are then visible to the blog owner and also to subsequent visitors who can in turncomment further. A wiki, on the other hand, is like a public website, or public webpage, started by one person, butwhich subsequent visitors can add to, delete or change as they wish. Instead of being a static website like a blog, a wiki ismore dynamic, and can have multiple authors. A wiki is like having a publicity accessible word processing documentavailable online, which anyone can edit. Essentially, a wiki is not linear, like a blog. A blog consists of a number ofpostings published on one page and in reverse chronological order with the most recent posting at the top. A wiki has anon-linear structure and pages may link back and forwards to other pages.To my mind, a wiki is better for teaching purposes than blogs since its main page is linked to other pages where studentscan go if they would like to do so at any time and its postings are not published in reverse chronological order. Wikis aregood options for teachers because students can be active participants by adding, editing or changing information, but inblogs students can only add comments.Gavin Dudeney and Nickly Hockley (2007), Blogs, wikis and podcasts (Chapter 7), How to teach with technology, PearsonEducation Limited.Pete Sharma and Barney Barrett (2007), Creating and using your own resources (Chapter 9), Blended learning,Macmillan Publishers Limited.WEB 2.0 TOOLS INCLUDED.1) PHOTOPEACH2) DVOLVER3) WITTY COMICS4) XTRANORMALMariana Claure.
