The article on the website SmartTeaching.org, 50 Ways to Use Wikis for a More Collaborative and Interactive Classroom, shows that there are many ways to use a wiki by students or pupils.

The 50 ways to use wikis are classifed in the following main categories:

  • Ressources creation: post difficult math problems so that the class can collaboratively solve them...
  • Student participation: creation of a dictionnary, sharing notes...
  • Group projects: task management, centralize documents...
  • Student interaction: get your students write a short story together, share reviews on movies or books...
  • For the classroom: FAQ, calendar...
  • Community: share recipes with parents, let the parents log in on the wiki to see what their children have accomplished....
  • Other: work with other teachers to create lesson plans, use wikis as a hub...

Professors, students... you're lacking inspiration ? This article will give you many ideas to implement. On this occasion, thanks to all the universities and schools that have downloaded our solutions during these last months.
