Tool # 6

Wikis are fabulous and another way to engage children in learning while collaborating with others. I could see kids working together to create a book review or summary using wikis. As a reading specialist that might come in quite handy. I enjoyed previewing a 2nd grade teacher's wiki where she had her kids writing. Another class was studying graphing so they conducted a survey on favorite foods. It didn't surprise me that pizza won! Talk about engaging the learner! Wiki's could be also useful for team newsletters.
