I got an email from PBwiki and figured this would be a good place to share. If you don't know, PBwiki offers ad-free wiki hosting for educators.

More information can be found here...
http://pbwiki.com/edu.html
http://educators.pbwiki.com/

They are offering PBwiki Presenter Packs. So, if
you're giving a presentation about wikis, they will ship you a free PBwiki t-shirt, an easy-to-read PDF about wikis, a Powerpoint with pictures of real PBwiki users, and 3 FREE Gold Premium wikis to give out to your audience.

They have also posted
, self proclaimed, the coolest videos in the world. They filmed real educators using PBwiki and asked the questions: what they like, what they can improve, and common concerns. They have posted 7 videos, including:

How do you use PBwiki?
Is PBwiki safe?
How does collaboration work?

Hi Aaron

I have a PB wiki account and it looks good. I do need to go back and spend some quality time looking into it, particularly the Is 'PB wiki safe?' article. I have just been reading the blog on to host or not to host and the issues around what we in the UK call eSafety. I am of the same opinion as nLowell that we need to empower and equip young people to stay safe in the e environment. PB Wiki seems to offer this.

I dont know about you I came across PB Wiki on Googles Educators forum. We do need to have some of these 'big boys' to create quality educational wikis and blogs but to also create a much safer environment too.

I agree we need to train kids how to stay safe. But I will also add, we need to train them how to handle criticisms. If they are writing to a world wide audience, people are going to disagree. Especially when they are hiding behind a keyboard.
