Wikipedia is a global 'crowd sourced' encyclopaedia, in which content has been created by a community of users open to anyone. Many, particularly in universities and main stream media, have concerns over the reliability of its information, whilst others see the process of peer review more positively and believe that it can be used to teach vital information literacy skills. We briefly review some aspects of this debate.
Beyond Wikipedia itself, wikis in general provide a collaborative, web-based workspace in which a group may work together on shared tasks, reviewing and revising one another’s contribution. We explore some of the ways in which they might be used as a medium for children’s writing.
You go on to work together to plan and the n create a shared wiki with your group, to explore examples of literature written for children.
DIRECTED TASK
• As a group you should agree a broad theme for your children’s literature wiki with your tutor. Your tutor will help you decide an initial structure for the wiki, which, as a group, you may subsequently change.
• Each of you should take responsibility for creating at least one page of the wiki, trying to avoid topics or authors chosen by others.
• Review the pages created by your colleagues.
• Make positive, constructive changes to at least three other pages.
TO FOLLOW UP
• Read Desilets and Paquet (2005) or Wheeler et al (2008). Post a critical reflection on the article you read to your blog.
• Continue the development of your group wiki over subsequent weeks as directed task work for English.
