Wikis in teacher education

In one project, I will try to develop a wiki for students in teacher education, which should function as a “Wikipedia” for teacher education. By that, I mean that the articles should be within the context of teacher education. For instance, an article on multiplication would not only say what multiplication is or how it is done, but also include examples of pupils’ misconceptions, ideas of teaching materials and so on.

The wiki ("eleviki"), is currently on a very early stage, but I hope to start using it with students in August.

A lot more could be said on this and my other main interests, but this should suffice for now.
