Abstract

Recently, weblog (blogs) and wiki technologies have exploded into the public awareness. While these technologies have been around for several years, they are now garnering more attention both inside and outside the educational world. Starting in spring/summer semester of 2004, we began adding these technologies to our Technology for Teachers preservice course. This presentation will explain our methods for using blogs and wikis in the class, share some examples of student work, and report the results from a research project currently being conducted to better understand the students' experiences with the technologies and the potential impact of these technologies on the learning in the course.
