Wikis – 23 Things Kansas

I like wikis – or at least the ‘peanut butter’ version – pbwiki. Wikis are a cross between a blog and cloud computing. They allow for collaboration while allowing for public viewing. I use a wiki with my independent study students since they have to collaborate on projects. I also have a wiki to promote web 2.0 tools and their use — NV Raiders Wiki.

I also started the Nemaha Valley Schools entry on Wikipedia. That was an experience that every librarian should undertake. They wouldn’t accept the article until I could provide citations. I still don’t have everything cited that they want. I  simply haven’t had the time to spend at the district office locating the exact documents and writing the citations. Thus, the article is tagged with “multiple issues”
