Another short and sweet video from Lee Lefever on wikis, which is a common space that can be edited by several people and therefore promotes collaboration. Wikis can be used for students and for professionals. TechLearning had a great article on how wikis can be used in the classroom, and Ben Wilkoff has a very powerful way to utilize wikis with his students in The Discovery -Ism Project and The Discovery Utopia project. Both are work checking out.
Ben Wilkoff is a perfect example of how we can channel the energy of our digital learners.
Our technology department in our school system uses a wiki to post news, updates, and forums. Since anyone can edit the pages, it makes for a great collaborative tool. In addition, I have used wikispaces.com to host resources and information for technology classes that I teach in the county.
