Collaboration through wiki's

In Paula's video she brings up many good points about using wiki's in the class room setting. She notes that wiki's can be used to help students learn to collaborate and reach a higher level of engagement. Another thing that she addressed that I appreciated was that you can't just assign students assignments on wiki's and expect them to be excited about it. She said that students learn best when they want to learn and will be more engaged in the activity when it is about something that they truely care about. I thought this was neat because you could tell that she really cares about her students and their hobbies and interests. The video was very informative about getting students engaged which I think is something that is very important for our next generation of students
