Teacher-Led Student Centered Instruction

Version 1

    Students in a Sophomore English class, after reading 1984, were able to research and collaborate in small groups on a BlackBoard wiki. Students were assigned countries including our own and were asked to discuss the modern involvement of governments in surveillance techniques. The wiki encouraged collaboration.According to a recent Essay on Teaching Excellence, wikis provide a vehicle for exercising most, if not all, of Bloom’s ‘higher order thinking’ activities.
