MIT Lifelong Kindergarten Group 20101AgendaExplore Nested Structure of Web 2.0 DataSchema of Web 2.0 Research MethodsProspectus for Researching Classroom WikisEfficacy: How do we make them good?Equity: Do only certain kids get the good ones?Dip in to the data

2What are wikis and why should we study them?DEFINITION: Wikis are Web sites where any one can edit any page at any timeGROWING IMPORT: Use of Web 2.0 tools and networks (blogs, wikis, social networks, discussion forums) is growing exponentially in education, and transforming our societySTUDENT-CENTERED: A democratic, citizen-centered ideology is baked into wiki architecture making them promising platforms for teaching 21st century skills***NESTED, RETROSPECTIVE CORPUS***: Wikis preserve their entire history of activity in a nested data structure that allows research of infinitely variable granularity (like Google Earth)34
