A New Way to Use Wikipedia in Education: A Pilot Study of Map-like Wikipedia Visualization on iPad

Cheong-Iao Pang, Sek-Si Si, and Sio-Kuan Chio
 Abstract—iPad has started to appear in classrooms recently. Studies show that the tablet computer engages students in learning and improves student performance. On the other hand, Wikipedia attracts many attentions in education field as well despite of worries about credibility and reliability. We have developed a prototype of interactive Map-like Wikipedia Visualization in an earlier research project. In order to test the feasibility of such a new technology in classrooms, we conducted an explorative study which combines the usage of iPad, Wikipedia and the visualization in a high school in Macau S.A.R. This paper presents the design of this study and the result we observed.

Index Terms—iPad, tablet computer, high school education, Wikipedia, map-like visualization, information visualization
