I've created a wiki in hopes of luring the teachers I work with into trying wikis. Here's the description of the project and if you'd like to take a peek or join, visit the above link and request an invitation.
"Many students around the world study geography and specifically, cities. In the United States, this commonly takes place in third grade. This project, however, is open to any school class that would like to participate.
The main purpose of this online space is to provide a place for students and teachers to store information and artifacts created during these city units of study. Because material related to several different cities will be published here, students will be able to compare and contrast their home cities with those of other kids. Teachers will benefit as well by establishing relationships with teachers around the world and by gleaning project ideas from these online colleagues. All people involved will also hone their technological and collaborative skills by working in this wiki environment.
There are no hard and fast rules for the Cities Around the World wiki. Teachers can select any activity in which to participate, and are encouraged to edit the wiki by adding their own ideas.
Right now, this is a private space. Feel free to refer other teachers and kids here. Eventually, our wiki may be open to the public, so please take precautions to insure your students' privacy. Do not use students' full names in this space.
Remember that Wikispaces will create accounts for students without using email addresses if you give them usernames and passwords. See this page for more information!!!"
