Dear Colleagues, I recently 'discovered' how easy it is to create a wiki (an interactive teacher-student collaborative website for your classroom; think "wikipedia" tailored to your classroom). So I immediately created a wiki (during the Christmas Vacation Break) for High School Geometry Fun, a work-in-progress that you are welcome to visit and view and play around in: https://hsgeometryadventure.wikispaces.com/ (Be prepared: this is the Opposite of Boring... :-) And I welcome all comments and suggestions AND collaborations... As well today, I came across the following excellent website that CONCISELY introduces teachers to "What are wikis and how can teachers create and use them in their classroom with their students?", including a real High School History Class Wiki example focused on studying and 'wikifying' FUN about Shakespeare's Henry IV play...wonderfully and concisely presented in a 6 minute video by the EdTechTeacher website: http://thwt.org/historywikis.html Enjoy the Magic... You have just entered the WikiZone...of Classroom Teaching Fun... Sincerely, Allen Berg Kepler's Apprentice
