The idea of creating a Wiki through WikiSpaces as an online learning platform never occurred to me until now. I had put it in the too hard basket. However, after some research, I'm really warming to the idea. I'm finding the pros certainly outweigh the cons of using an online medium in the classroom.
Do the advantages outweigh the disadvantages? Do the changes to the way I deliver the course improve the task at hand? In accordance with the SAMR model, is the introduction of a Wikispace going to increase student learning and outcomes?
