Links to Wikis created by teachers


A wiki is a website that contains many pages with flexible connectivity between the pages. A wiki allows all users to freely edit content. There are controls for ensuring published content is appropriate to the topic of the wiki. A wiki also allows multi-user collaboration on common interest points. You can add graphics, video, podcasting, etc. to build a robust system with students and colleagues. Classroom examples for use of a wiki include portfolios (wikifolio), newsletters for students and parents, and the study of anatomy.

Visit Wiki-Teacher to connect to resources for all grade levels and subject areas.
