Working on my Wiki for my middle school students has really inspired me to keep going with all the web 2.0 tools. Once I saw how engaged my students were not only in my class but outside I knew I found a great new way to teach. I started to introduce the Wiki last school year as a "test" to see how it would go. Now, I am working on Podcasts as well as the Wiki!

I started using a wiki last year with my 7th and 8th grade for collaboration on a book. I, too, was inspired by their enthusiasm and it kept me going. I would really like to get podcasts going, too! I am using the wiki at present with only my eight grade class. There are 15 students. I would like to get "wiki pals' another class with whom we could collaborate on writing on-line. What do you think? I'll check back to see if you're interested. This is my first attemp on 2.0, so I think it's pretty cool you posted this message. It validates what I'm doing! : )

That is an interesting idea. I have about 20 students. I see my students for 9 week rotations. Can you tell me a little bit about your setup? Also, where are you located. I would love to take a look at your Wiki if you would allow me access. Thanks for posting!!

I am a regular classroom teacher in a K-8 Parochial school located in Nebraska. I take my 6, 7 and 8 LA students to the lab once a week, but they have access to the wiki at home, so a lot of their work has to be done there. I probably wouldn't want to attempt any collaboration until the end of the first quarter. I'm not sure if our set-ups will work if you're a computer lab teacher.. but we could try! : ) If you give me an e-mail address I could send you the Wiki access info as it is a closed site.
