Abstract

This study describes initial findings of students’ learning processes and attitudes in constructing wiki sites in Technology-Enabled, Active Learning (TEAL) classrooms. TEAL classrooms aim to provide a collaborative, computer-rich, and interactive learning environment with a flexible seating arrangement. As an open source knowledge management tool for collaborative authoring, a wiki provides the pedagogical opportunities of collaborative learning while helping students create and maintain actual learning content. In this study, the wiki sites were constructed using the Blackboard (Bb) learning management system. This study used qualitative research techniques such as interview, observation, and document analysis, to examine the student use of wikis in collaborative learning projects. In addition, data were gathered on the teachers and students’ perspectives towards the learning strategy, and the students’ motivation and higher-order thinking activities during the collaborative projects.
