Abstract

This mixed methods study explored how high school students spontaneously interacted with each other in an asynchronous environment within the comments posted to two wiki projects. The analysis showed high levels of engagement, motivation, and collaboration. The compelling evidence in this study indicates that using wikis as a medium through which students can actively learn integrates meaningful technology and collaborative construction of knowledge that must become an essential component of teacher education programs.
