I don't know much about wikis except that they are a great tool for connecting groups.

A wiki is a 21st century tool because it can connect people globally. I'm thinking about using a wiki with my 4th grade students and 8th grade students at WJHS as a means for them to work collaboratively without having to meet face to face.

Wiki's allow a community of people to more easily communicate and collaborate through a medium that supports creativity and an instantaneous flow of information.  I envision a platform for learners to work together, both inside and outside of the classroom, from all areas of the world.

Lori wants to learn about Wiki's so she can create collaborative environments for her students and teachers.  This would be great even for circulating materials,using in collaboration and eliminating redundancies.

We are able to collaborate online using this 21st century learning tool, Wiki. Colleagues, family members, and friends can edit the same document without emailing different versions back and forth. We will be working on our BILLS spreadsheet using a Wiki in my family.

    When I think of 21st century learning, I think of things that I did not have in elementary school or even in college 15 year ago...where I didn't even have an email account.
     I think the Wiki can be especially useful as a communication tool for ELL students. My students are at various stages in the language acquisition but I'm a strong believer in having them read and write as much as possible. I think this would be a great way for them to write in a non-threatening environment where they don't need to worry about being criticized. I know that they appreciate the use of technology because I often have them email me assignments, and they jump at that chance. This would be a new stage for them to be able to communicate with me and one another.

Wikis are 21st century because...

Communication will forever be changed - people are no longer depending on paper, face-to-face, or other traditional forms of connecting to each other such as telephones, written letters, newspapers, and even News at 5. Although some if not all of us may be feeling some sorrow over the end of these forms of communication, this future is moving forward whether we 'approve' or not.
Wikis allow us to communicate NO MATTER where we are as long as there is internet access. So - for me personally - it means I might just have to learn how to text (no laughing please). suzanne

A wiki can be used with many people to make a group project. Everyone can change and alter the document. Here in the 21st century it is the most collaborative.

A wiki is a 21st Century tool because it allows people from any location to work collaboratively. Communication can occur in real time or people can get on at their convenience. As a librarian, I want to use a wiki for student book reviews.
