Using Wikis for Projects
In LINC 7 (Workplace Focus) the Ss have to perform case studies about workplace safety and human rights. They work in teams of 4 to analyze the case (reading summaries, listening to "conversations" about the case, and researching BC law). They then must write a report that includes a summary, an analysis, and at least 5 recommendations.
In the past I had Ss use Google Docs for this, so that they could work on different sections of the report simultaneously. However, I definitely see the application of using a Wiki for this because it is perfect for collaboration and allows Ss more flexibility than Google Docs.
I would upload the task instructions, the text and audio components, and then let the Ss work out how to best present their ideas. They could add audio and video samples to support their case. The resulting Report could be a much more dynamic document.
