The CoolCatTeacher

In the past, I’ve often used wikis to manage and track projects. The easiest way to explain the power of tracking is to compare the Project Pals workspace to a wiki. On a wiki, each page has a history and a teacher can see which student added or made changes to a wiki page.

Nik Peachey

In this feature I'd like to show you how to create your own free wiki using 'Wetpaint' and look at some of the reasons for using wikis to achieve educational goals. First, for those of you who don't know what a wiki is, here's a quick definition which comes from one of the most famous wikis, wikipedia.org.

New Wikispaces Ad-free Program for Higher Education

The Learning Revolution Has Begun

Their "Free Wikis for Educators" program has given away some 980,000 free classroom wikis for K-12 education over the last five years (I''ve got to imagine that it will be a great moment for them to hit the 1 million mark). Their ability to stay in this magic zone for education gives hope when other companies have started with the promise of free, then faltered and had to move to paid models--most of which haven''t accommodated the individual educator well.

You need some kind of a website, you can go on edcamp wiki, you don''t need to build website, as long as you have URL that edcamp gives you then you can be done. Dan says when a company will send you stickers and they have millions of dollars, you can push back and say we have costs. That doesn''t cost company anything or much. That is sometimes tricky with larger companies, but smaller companies will write you a personal check.

Nik Peachey

Does it have an influence on their impressions of the company / product? For a long time now I've been fascinated with viral marketing campaigns and the way advertisers use these to promote their products. What's really interesting about them is the advertisers ability to come up with really novel and original ideas to capture our attention and make us want to share with others. My Fame Star is a great example of this and one that we can use to create lesson materials.
