Thing 16: Wikis

Wikis are great! We're already using them in our school to compile information. They are much easier to coordinate between groups of people than old fashioned email. At our elementary school, we use wikis to create lists of teacher's needs, list student district assessment scores, etc. One use for a wiki in my life would be for party planning :) The example given on the Common Craft show (Teacher Tube- Wikis in Plain English) where the group plans a camping trip is an excellent illustration of how wikis can make communication and collaboration so much easier.

Wikis in Plain English:

Often, I plan trips for my girlfriends and I to take. Using a wiki, we can collaborate together on the itinerary, lodging, and sites to see.
