Wikispaces for Wikis

June 5, 2008

Wikispaces (http://www.wikispaces.com/) is my recommendation for educational Wiki tool. It meets the standards put forth here and here.wiki

This is a free service for teachers! It allows teachers to create wikis for students quite easily, although email accounts are needed. A teacher could though create a master user account to share, but this would allow anonymous content posting, which could be problematic.

Teachers create their own account and then make accounts using student email. Teachers can be administrator of student wikis, which I like as it will ensure inappropriate content can be removed as needed.

The wikis can be kept completely private, requiring permission to view or edit. The sites are ad free for k12 education.
