Collaborative online writing
Wikis are a very good resource to work collaborative writing, it provides a lot of advantages to the students and the teacher. In the wikis students can develop a writing and have other classmates to edit or correct what they have written. A peer correction would help students realizae their mistakes, accepts classmate's opinion, argue and defend their own point of view, and the best advantage of all is that with this continue process of editing the writing would be improving more each time someone checks it out. Besides it helps students to be critic (in a good way) a writing and realize the mistakes that they make sometimes. However as we are working with an online resource we need to be aware of the comments or editions students make on each wiki, and that they do not have any disturbing content that might distract or offend other people.
