  • 16. Word of Caution: ACCESS
    Students as editors:
    -Giving students editorial control will instill in them a sense of responsibility and ownership and minimize risk of someone adding something offensive.
    …It only takes one student to derail our good intentions…
    -Spend time going over rules and expectations and emphasize consequences (wiki page with list of expectations/rules)
  • 17. Word of Caution-Pedagogical Concerns
    Role of the Teacher
    -Realize wiki participation as a democratic of knowledge creation.
    Research has shown that the more autonomy teachers give students in terms of negotiation the scope and quality of content they are creating, the better (Richardson, 2006)
    Students also reported increased reflection “It’s weird. I think about my book all the time now. Before, I only thought about my book when I read” . This came from a 5th grade at-risk student. (Koopman, 2010)
    Teachers who impose a lot of right and wrong on that process undermine the effectiveness of the tool.
    Koopman, B. (2010) From Socrates to Wikis. Kappan Magazine. V92 N4, p. 24-27
