Technologies Such as Wikis in the Classroom
Steele, Poppy
Online Submission, Paper presented at the Annual Instructional Technology Conference at Middle Tennessee State University (13th, Gallatin, TN, Apr 7, 2008)
The purpose of this report is to encourage the reader to explore wikis for use in classroom instruction and assignments. The information in this report was gleaned from interviews with various members of higher education as well as recent research by educators. The main problems found in the research with new technologies like wikis in classrooms was teacher training and access to computers with internet for under-privileged students. Some solutions to these issues are free conferences online for training of teachers and programs like TRIO SSS which provides free laptop checkouts for qualifying students. The answers are not clean and simple, but they can begin the process of adapting instruction to meet the needs of a changing educational environment as well as a changing student population.
