Wikis in Education : WikiWork

  2. 2. What is wiki ? “ Una wiki est un sitio web cuyas páginas web pueden ser editadas por múltiples voluntarios a través del navegador web. Los usuarios pueden crear, modificar o borrar un mismo texto que comparten. Los textos o «páginas wiki» tienen títulos únicos. Si se escribe el título de una «página wiki» en algún lugar del wiki, esta palabra se convierte en un «enlace web» a la página web."

  50. 50. What to wiki ? <ul><li>Knowledge production : the course itself </li></ul>Wikis enact knowledge building with and for others. The focus is on the community itself rather than on the individual learner.The implications of communal constructivism for the university context are of particular import. In the words of Holmes et al (2001), &quot;What we argue for is a Communal constructivism where students and teachers are not simply engaged in developing their own information but actively involved in creating knowledge that will benefit other students . In this model students will not simply pass through a course like water through a sieve but instead leave their own imprint in the development of the course, their school or university, and ideally the discipline.&quot; ( Fountain. R 2005)
