Using Wiki in Education

Using Wiki in Education

What is the book about? This book is a deep extension of the focus and content on Stewart Mader's blog, Using Wiki in Education It contains 10 case studies written by teachers that describe how they're using the wiki to transform courses and engage today's students in a range of environments including high school, small college, major research university, online/distance learning and research lab. It is the first book to focus specifically on the wiki in education and be developed and published using a wiki, so it actively demonstrates the tool in action. Who should read the book? Teachers, instructional technologists, instructional designers, academic technology consultants - anyone teaching a course, or involved in curriculum development and instructional technology. Academic technology leaders like CIOs, IT directors, and instructional technology directors will also find value in better understanding the wiki and seeing the increasingly vital role it plays in learning environments. What does it cost? Two chapters are initially available free, as well as the foreword and acknowledgements. Each month a new chapter will be made available for free until the entire book is available free. During this 8 month period, you can get immediate access to the entire book, as well as the ability to download chapters as PDF files, for $19.
