This is an amazing wiki from a teacher who is using the wiki across the curriculum in a range of ways. He is getting children to democractically vote for the template they use, he is adding a a collection of historical information about where they live, he is publishing some of the poems they have written and much more. A great model.

Creating an made up society
I enjoyed this wiki which is based around a community of people living on a small island in New Zealand - except that there is no such island and this is actually a class project using an imaginary community as a way to develop writing and other curriculum areas.

Resource for Educators

Well, to state the obvious, this wiki is one example of this. There are many others out there.

nks to a large number of wikis; many of which I have included on this page. It also has a page of excellent links to pages with guidance on how to use Wikis in education.
