Wikis and Dialogical Classrooms

A dialogical classroom is one in which literacy is used to immerse teachers and students in an ongoing reflective conversation with the texts of their lives. Such classrooms invite multiple perspectives and encourage participants to call self and other into question. Wikis, online interactive repositories for information and resources, are a Web 2.0 tool that facilitate dialogue both during and beyond face-to-face meeting time. In this session, I sketch the framework that supports dialogical teaching and give examples of how I’ve used wikis to sustain dialogue in my classes.
