WIKIs   - Wiki means "quick" in Hawaiian and quick web pages with collaborative capabilities is what wikis are all about. Wikipedia has over a million entries, and is larger than the Encyclopedia Britannica - as one outstanding example of wiki collaborative effectiveness.

Training on Wiki Educational Uses


education wiki (WikEd) that is a resource housed by (and created for) CTER (the Curriculum, Technology and Education Reform - an online Master's program) that is part of the Department of Educational Psychology, College of Education, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.  It even has links to pages in Spanish.  The pages that I have viewed have contained some excellent information as well as additional links.

WetPaint WIKI



WebPaint offers many many features

Project-Based Learning resource wikis

http://usefulwiki.com/page/Reinventing_Project-based_Learning - notes from the same presentation with links, etc.


http://usefulwiki.com/page/PBL_links - a wiki with some excellent links to PBL resources, ideas, etc.


http://del.icio.us/tag/projectbasedlearning - using the social bookmarking site del.icio.us these are all of the sites tagged with projectbasedlearning.  You will want to check for notes made by various users to see if the site is something you would find of interest.  Some excellent sites on the general idea around PBL as well as sites with excellent examples.


What's a Wiki?

1. Cut and paste this message into your word processor so you don't have to return to this wiki after you've viewed the video below, and to save the very valuable URLs.  

Get into the habit of saving great urls throughout this course!

Anything you or I might write here can be edited by anyone given access to his wiki. Some wikis require a password, some are public.

2. Select the Edit button above and add a sentence or two stating you've mastered editing a wiki. Don't forget to click "Save."

3. Learn more about wikis by viewing the video at


4. Then, create your own educational wiki at http://pbworks.com/education

Be sure to write down your login ID and password, and send the URL of your wiki to your instructor. This can take as little as 10-15 minutes, more as your interests dictate.


Here's a neat example of an NMSU wiki with rich resources



How do you protect your students with these type of tools?
