Using a Wiki to Prepare for a Group Presentation
While I was reading the section about using a wiki, an idea occurred to me. I'm currently teaching a LINC 4 evening class and we've been working on consumer skills. I'm planning a field trip next week to Best Buy and Future Shop to get students to do some comparison shopping on specific household appliances. Also, I'd like them to find out about return policies and warranties on those products. Here's my new idea: get them to work in small groups at the stores and then create short presentations on their findings. I'll also get them to use a wiki to plan that presentation. It will help them collaborate even though they are all short of time. Additionally, I will have a concrete record of who has contributed and who has not.
