Reason for Use

"Wikis can provide an effective context within which higher-level thinking skills and collective learning can take place, but not without careful planning on the part of the teacher. Control must be let go so that students are empowered to explore and discover and to work together toward a solution. This maximizes the problem-based approach but also increases the likelihood that students will acquire the kinds of skills that are transferable and the higher-level processing skills that complex problems require in order to work them through.
