Every educator should read this book! It is not just about history or wikis, it is about using technology to redefine teaching, learning, literacy, and knowledge. With more than a decade of experience, the authors provide unique insights, powerful stories, and interactive examples that will help you discover how to design innovative learning experiences for your students. -- Torrey Trust, Assistant Professor, Learning Technology, Teacher Education and Curriculum Studies, College of Education, University of Massachusetts, Amherst; ISTE Teacher Education Network President 2016-2017
Bob Maloy and Allison Malinowski have been working with wikis for so long they can knowledgeably tell you about everything that goes into making, curating, and using a wiki: the creation, the journey, the destination, and then creating new wikis for new journeys. The authors help the reader discover the multi-modal aspects of wiki pages. Most importantly, they uncover how teachers can integrate wikis into meaningful and focused student-centered instruction. -- Jeremy Greene, Social Studies Teacher, Chelmsford Massachusetts High School; Social Media Editor, New England History Teachers Association
With a specific focus on history and humanities teaching, Maloy and Malinowski provide detailed descriptions and specific strategies for how to use a wiki as a tool to bring about much needed changes to our often "one story-one textbook" approach used in K-12 schools. With the intentional focus on questions like Whose history? and From Whose Perspective?, this book is filled with powerful examples of work done by teachers and students who are together using wikis to build more inclusive history and humanities curriculums. The book is accessible to the technology novice or the more experienced technology user. -- Jodi Bornstein, Associate Professor of Education and Chair, Teacher Education Programs, Arcadia University
Beginning and experienced teachers will find great value in Wiki Works. Serving both as a resource and a "how to" guide, this book encourages history and humanities teachers to broaden the structure of historical narratives while providing their students with important opportunities to establish membership in global, national, and classroom communities. -- Sarah Drake Brown, Ball State University
