McPherson?, K. (2006). wikis and student writing. Teacher Librarian, 34 (2), 70-72.

McPerson? debates the advantages of employing wikis in a writing classroom against his observations of an increase in informal writing in other online venues. He concludes the advantages outweigh the disadvantages associated with wikis and other online forums. However, he offers the caveat of using wikis within a strictly regimented and guided process.
