Write a Wikibook: Make it a class project to collaboratively write a reference book that others can use.
Study guides: Ask students to create study guides for a specific part of the unit you’re studying.
Readers’ guides: Have your students create readers’ guides to share their favorite and most important parts of works you’ve read in class.
Solving wiki: Post difficult math problems, such as calculus, so that the class can collaboratively solve them.
Glossary: Get your class to create a glossary of terms they use and learn about in new units, adding definitions and images.
Class encyclopedia: Ask your class to create an "encyclopedia" on a topic, adding useful information that can be built upon through the years.
Create exploratory projects: If you’re teaching a new subject, ask your students to collect and share information in the wiki so that you can learn together.
Exam review: Encourage students to share review notes and other helpful pieces of information on your classroom’s wiki.
Peer review: Allow students to draft their papers in a wiki, then ask other students to comment it.
Student portfolios: Assign portfolio pages to each of your students, and allow them to display and discuss their work.
Correction competition: You can post a document riddled with mistakes, then have students compete to see who can fix the most errors fastest.
Peer editing: Ask students to edit each others’ work for spelling, grammar, and facts based on a style guide or rules you’ve defined.
Vocabulary lists: Encourage students to submit words that they had trouble with, along with a dictionary entry.
Get feedback: Ask students to post comments about a lesson, a novel, a field trip, etc., on wiki pages.
Share notes: Let your students share their collective information so that everyone gets a better understanding of the subject.
Collect data: Use central documents to make sure that data collection is uniform and easy to manage.
Mock-debate: Pit two class candidates against each other and perform a debate on your wiki.
Study buddy matching: Let students match themselves up into study buddy pairs.
Multi-author story: Start a creative writing unit, and get your students to write a short story together, each writing a small amount of the story.
Choose your own adventure story: A twist on the multi-author story could be a choose your own adventure story, where each student branches out into a different path.
Share reviews: Post articles for different movies, books, and TV shows, encouraging students to share what they though about them.
Literature circles: Host a book club on your wiki where students are required to read the same book, then discuss it on the wiki. Possible Uses: Taken from:
