Shamelessly Advertising for PBwikis

slide11I’ve written before about how much I like wikis. I’m not paid by PBWiki in any way. Really! I do like the way they do wikis, though. There’s many others out there (they may appeal to you more than PBWiki…): Wetpaint, Wikidot, Wikispaces, and Zoho wiki. Actually, most are pretty user friendly.

Anyway, PBwiki has a series of upcoming webinars OR you could just jump right in and give a wiki a try. They really make for easy web pages and serve to promote collaboration.

Give it a try!

Wondering Whether Wikis Work Well For You?

Clipart Illustration Of A Chimp In Thought, Sitting On Top Of A Stack Of Books And Staring At A Globe, Pondering The UniverseI mentioned in the previous post that I like Wikis. If you don’t know what a wiki is or you would like to learn how to more effectively make use of wikis, Wikispaces is offering a free Webinar on how to maximize a wiki for educational purposes. Space is limited and a software download of Elluminate is required. I’ve enrolled and I hope to ‘see’ you there!

I blog, you blog, we all blog for ‘feedblog’

 

Ok – a corny title (I had ice cream on the brain, today!… substitute scream for blog and ice for feed).

 

How much of a blog can/should be a reflection of other blogs? I’m finding myself reading more blogs and the more I do the more I see a repetition of topics (for a common idea see “De-Echoing My Reading Practice …”- Will Richardson)… seems natural on one hand, but counterproductive on the other. There’s so much amazing, learning ‘stuff’ out there (see post on “Informal Learning Flow” – Jay Cross) and many of us love to share…

For example, Andy Torris turned me on to an excellent resource for anyone who groups people and works with them. Already a fan of wikis (especially pbwikis), Teampedia is a collaborative encyclopedia of free team building activities, free icebreakers, teamwork resources, and tools for teams that anyone can edit!”  

So really, let’s look at balance… how much repetition is useful? Comments welcome.
