Collaborative Writing (part 2)

This morning I was hunting around for ways to integrate multiple editable sections from pages within wikispace all onto the one page, as you would see in a typical wikipedia.org page. Discovering this post on a wikispaces discussion forum, I was easily able to set up a complete essay page which combines all the essay components (intro, paragraphs 1-3 and conclusion) that my students had created.

The final result can be seen here in my class’ Jouneys Essay – which is one of the four essays my students collaboratively wrote during the lesson. Without being brilliant, it is no doubt a very solid essay that is, for the most part, structurally sound and coherent. Perhaps more importantly, the process behind the product involved much higher-order thinking and was continuously metacognitive for all engaged students.
