Creating a wiki for your students. Why and How?

This is a Work in Progress.

I am preparing this post as a reflection of my previous post on "Creating a blog for your students". Have a quick read of this post before you jump into your "wiki work".

I have recently found this great site, newtoolsworkshop through Twitter. For most social media tools, this is a wonderful launchpad for learning.

This social media learning wiki is also very useful. Useful to explore the main site for other tips.

I have a wikispaces wiki. As you will have learnt from the site above, there are a number of reliable wiki creation platforms.

Click for the wikispaces tutorial, for help and for help + index.

This is another very useful post for teachers getting started with wiki work.
