Techtalk: Wikis and Collaborative Knowledge Construction
Caverly, David C.; Ward, Anne
Journal of Developmental Education, v32 n2 p36-37 Win 2008
In the last column, we began discussing Web 2.0 applications. In this column, we'll review participatory, social networking software called "wikis." We'll define wikis, discuss their use in college classrooms, explore benefits provided for collaborative knowledge construction, and explain five types of wikis with applications to developmental education (DE).
