The above diagram depicts how I am using a WIKI in one of my classes. Students read the chapter more carefully since they know that another student will be looking over their summary. The student who reviews the summary has to carefully read the chapter and then the summary to see what is missing, add any important concepts, and then to supply examples of the ideas presented in the text. The last student has to read the chapter, read the summary and examples, adds more examples, and then determine what outside sources will help other students who read this. They also know that I can see all the revisions to see what they added. By the way, many textbooks are not sequential.
To paraphrase a student, “I have to examine the text more since I know someone will be looking at my summary.”
How do you improve student learning through a WIKI?
