The Good, the Bad and the Wiki: Evaluating Student-Generated Content for Collaborative Learning
Wheeler, Steve; Yeomans, Peter; Wheeler, Dawn
British Journal of Educational Technology, v39 n6 p987-995 Nov 2008
This paper explores the potential for wiki-type open architecture software to promote and support collaborative learning through the use of student-created content. It delineates some of the affordances and constraints of wiki software as an open architecture that has the potential to facilitate collaborative learning through community-focused enquiry. It seeks to promote debate in this key area of development, and highlights some recent key contributions to the developing discourse on social software in what has been termed "the architecture of participation".
