Ways to use a Wiki

This is a blog posting from September 18, 2008 containing a list of possible ways to use Wikis in the classroom.

 

Mr. Morrisons's Collaborative Wiki --- that has an awesome example of Voki--- a site where you can create your own speaking avatar... it's lots of fun and you can be anybody -- or have any body--- you want!

 

Room 113 SMM - a great example of how a Wiki is being used in the classroom!

Collaborative Learning

Welcome to the Collaborative Learning wiki. This space was created for the Learning@School conference 2009.

We hope to investigate what Collaborative learning is within the context of Web 2.0 and provide you with an overview or starting point for where to start.

PBWiki Power Educator

This is a wiki page by an educator who is using his parents in his district to get his district on board with using Wikis. There are also great question and answers about how this teacher uses wikis in their classroom and getting people on board with using wikis. Take a look! (BTW...I got this resource from a twitter from PBKrissy who works for PBWiki - Twitter is another great resource tool - plus it's fun. If you're interested in knowing about Twitter, visit my Twitter page.)
