Using wikis with your students

Integrating new and powerful tools with your students can be a bit challenging (even though it's incredibly rewarding as well)... Finding this resource on Educational Wikis prompted me post to RETA Moodle.. and so I repost here:

The educators wiki at PBWiki.com rocks.

Here are some valuable resources you'll want to use as you implement wikis and other collaborative read/write tools with your students.

How do you protect your students with these type of tools?

What kinds of expectations/etiquette can you suggest for your students when they use wikis?

The webinar was great. Full of ideas and examples. I tried WetPaint.com but was very disappointed in all the advertising and popups. I think I will stick with PBWiki!
