Chapter eight has a large focus on Wiki’s and why they are useful to the classroom. In this it states that teachers use wiki’s in their classroom to post technology projects in the wiki and then allow students to use the discussion tab to have a conversation on the information that was entered. This allows the teacher to see all of the students work and ideas in one place and it also allows the students to hold pride in their work because it will be on the internet. Wiki’s are beneficial to use in the classroom for project based assignments, collaboration in the classroom, authentic work, and utilizing the captive audience. In the business classroom I could utilize a wiki for a discussion that we might have in class to change it up from students just talking. They could post to the discussion section of the wiki and it would allow them to see a different way to communicate with one another. I could also use it for their co-op to track the work that they are completing in their work based learning. In the business environment wiki’s can be useful in the company setting to discuss information worldwide if you have employees traveling. You could also utilize wikis when working on a project within the company. Wiki’s seem to be a great tool for the classroom and business environment.
