    • I love the idea of using a wiki to create several blank pages on various topics –
      • Battles in a particular war (social studies)
      • Characters in a book or play (english)
      • Different biological systems (biology)
    • Podcast a simulated interview with someone in history – past president, other influential leader
    • Use a wiki to create a collaborative textbook or study guide
  • 6. Questions
    • How much professional development is necessary to successfully implement a web 2.0 tool?
    • Is there a comparison of different wikis? What is the most user-friendly? Has the most “teacher features”?
