I teach seventh grade science (biology) at a school that supports technology strongly. As I read through the various postings, I start brainstorming valuable uses for various technologies. I've checked out several middle school class wikis and am thinking of changing the way that I use wikis with my students.
My idea is to appoint a student each day to be the class scribe. That students job that evening is to summarize and post the events and notes from that day's class on the wiki.
My students are pretty strong technology users and have great access to computers and internet at home. We have 3 computer labs available to use with our student population (about 150 kids in middle school) so access to technology is not an issue.
Do you have an experience using a wiki in this manner? Any advice?
