Abstract

This pilot study examined the perceptions of pre-service teachers regarding the usefulness of wikis to develop a collection of curriculum-based web sites. Further, it examined the consistency of their participation in the reader, writer and editor roles. Results revealed that participants did not consistently read, write or edit the wiki during the semester. Reasons given for the lack of consistent participation in the reader and writer roles were lack of motivation, lack of time and lack of understanding. Participants were very uncomfortable with editing the work of others and with others editing their work. They liked the accessibility that wikis provide and that they could collaborate with peers without sending multiple emails and at a time of their choosing. They agreed that wikis are good tools for collaboration and facilitated their ultimate task of building a collection.
