Wikis are simple to use collaborative hypertext authoring systems. In recent years, these systems have caught the
attention of the education community, because they embody many aspects of personal empowerment and communication
between learners. To date, most work on Wiki in education has focused on use for information creation and sharing by
students at the post-primary level. In this paper, we present a case study where primary level students (Grade 4-6) used a Wiki
for collaborative storytelling. The paper reports on our experience with this activity in the course of 5 semesters since 2002, each
semester comprising 9 hours of class time. The paper reports observations on the collaborative process that took place during the
activity. It also describes the activity in sufficient detail to allow a technically sophisticated teacher to use it in the classroom, and
makes recommendations on how Wiki could be improved to better support collaborative storytelling by young children.
