Although I am not the biggest fan of the use of technology in the classroom, I personally really like the use of wikis. I have actually used them before in previous classes and I found it extremely helpful when working on group projects. I think it is an awesome way to collaborate with people in your group but also be able to work on the assignment based on your schedule. I do not know if this would be useful for the younger crowd of students but I most definitely know that for students in high school and college, this is an awesome tool to use in case you cannot get the assignment done in class. I think the most impactful thing about wikis is that everyone has access to the same document and everyone can work on it at different times. One negative thing that may come up with wiki’s is people may take the editing of another person too personal. Or, one person may end up doing all the work, but the cool thing about wiki is that the teacher has access to see who wrote what, so everyone will be accredited to what they submitted.
I was curious to see how teachers reactions were to Wiki, was so I searched on YouTube and found the video below. I think depending on the age group of children and the assignment, I will most definitely be using Wiki in my classroom and in future projects that I have for myself.
