Chalk Talk: Wikis vs. Blogs: A Comparison of Educational Tools
Wikis and blogs are popular educational technology tools, but what exactly are the differences between the two? The main difference is that wikis can be edited by anyone, while blogs can only be altered by the entry’s author(s). Because of this, a whole class of students can contribute to wikis, making them highly collaborative. On blogs, collaboration occurs primarily in the form of students posting in the ‘Comments’ section. Since anyone can contribute to and edit wikis, they have an unlimited number of authors, whereas blogs typically have one or a few authors. With information being constantly added to wikis, they continually grow, while blog posts stand alone and are only changed when the author(s) do so. Because wikis can be edited by anyone and everyone, teachers must have strict rules for how students use wikis and how they need to respect one another’s work and perspectives; of course, rules are needed with blogs as well, but they need not be quite as stringent. Both wikis and blogs offer some practice with writing, with blogs likely requiring more. However, wikis are a better tool for peer revision, as students can respond directly to lines of their peers’ texts.
