Am I a Wiki Girl in a Wiki World?  Considering the number of times I answer mundane questions that arise with a quick search in Wikipedia, that would be a resounding YES!  I find that the majority of information in Wikipedia is accurate, and I often cross-check facts to ensure veracity.

I really liked the wiki used by Mr. Driscoll’s students in gathering information about climate change, since this is really applicable to my AP German 5 class in our unit on sustainability.

While I think a wiki is useful, it would definitely be easier to create a shared Google doc for groups.  I’m not resistant to using Wikispaces, but it’s just so much more convenient to use the technology at hand in my school.

I still have some concerns about responsible use of resources gathered in a wiki, so that’s something I’ll have to improve on as my students embark on projects with new technologies.
