The Making of a History Standards Wiki: "Covering", "Uncovering", and "Discovering" Curriculum Frameworks Using a Highly Interactive Technology
Maloy, Robert W.; Poirier, Michelle; Smith, Hilary K.; Edwards, Sharon A.
History Teacher, v44 n1 p68-81 Nov 2010
This article explores using a wiki, one of the newest forms of interactive computer-based technology, as a resource for teaching the Massachusetts K-12 History and Social Science Curriculum Framework, a set of state-mandated learning standards. Wikis are web pages that can be easily edited by multiple authors. They invite active involvement by teachers and students who collaborate in new roles as authors, editors, and readers of academic content. Given the emergence of wikis in business and communications, history teachers are considering ways to use this technology to engage students, promote history education, and address the demands of curriculum standards and high-stakes achievement tests. (Contains 4 figures and 17 notes.)
