Wiki Templates Transforming Instructional Environments (WITTIE)

Through a wiki application and a suite of teacher-friendly template tools that help teachers and students work together to create and assess original Wiki-based texts, WITTIE helps teachers move to a student-centric approach to learning. Using WITTIE, students choose the content, write the text, and serve as the primary evaluators of the texts they create, becoming designers of their own educational environments.

Through a wiki application and a suite of teacher-friendly template tools that help teachers and students work together to create and assess original Wiki-based texts, WITTIE helps teachers move to a student-centric approach to learning. Using WITTIE, students choose the content, write the text, and serve as the primary evaluators of the texts they create, becoming designers of their own educational environments. WITTIE will be piloted via two different case examples: the creation of a student-authored textbook in a higher education course; and the building of a multi-media collaborative text on communities written by K-12 students across the globe.
