    ...
    A very popular wiki that you've probably heard of is the collaborative encyclopedia called Wikipedia. So, anyone can create an account and then be a part of creating and editing Wikipedia. Some people think this idea is a little scary because if anyone can edit the page, doesn't it follow that someone could write any kind of nonsense they want? Well, yes. However, because so many people are involved, there is always going to be someone to catch the nonsense and change it. Users earn trust as time goes by and their contributions are rated by other users. As they do, they are granted more privileges. For example, they can block abusive users.

    ...
    currently have twenty-sixmore than fifty different wikis.
    Although wikis are designed for collaboration, you can decide exactly who has the power to make any changes. For example, my wikis that are content-based are locked down. I don't want students to have the ability to change the notes and examples for a course. I do allow my students to become members of some of the wikis, though, so that they have access to things like mail between users and comments.
    Almost all of my wikis can be seen by members only. Below is a link to a wiki I created for my French students. This one is only partially private. It can be seen by anyone online.

    Below are some of the educator blogs I often read. I hope you will find some of them interesting, as well.
    Angela Maiers - an educational consultant from Des Moines, Iowa who always seems to hit the topic I've been looking for.
    ...
    to ponder. The lastOne blog entry
    ...
    resist that? His post for Monday, October 25, 2010 is titled '10 iPad / iPhone Apps for Primary School Teachers'. How cool is that?
    Dean Shareski - When I first started seeing his tweets, I thought shareski was a cute nickname. After all, sharing is caring and I know I'm far from being the only teacher who loves to share the things I find. Well, as you can see by the beginning of this entry, the gentleman is actually named Dean Shareski. He does share a lot of very interesting items, too.
    Scott McLeod has a Ph.D. and is an associate professor of educational administration at Iowa State University. His blog, titled 'dangerously ! irrelevant' never fails to make me think.
