One million pronunciations of Wiki
Everytime I hear someone say wiki, I cringe just a little. This is one of those words in the English language that has adopted millions of pronunciations. In fact, I think you can date a person by the way that they pronounce the word.
Okay, once I got over that, I had a good time checking out some Wikis. A personal favorite of mine belongs to my husband for his AP US History course. I love that he integrates technology into his classroom and gets his highschoolers thinking in bigger terms. I learned something new about our history this morning!
I can see using this for group collaboration on projects. In some of our 4-H work, we have used a portal site,which has been nice, but there has always been a central administrator. That person gets dumped with the task of organizing information- not a fun job. So we'll see if this is something that begins to have more usage in the world of Extension. My type A personality has a little problem with the lack of control with this, but I suppose I can get over that too...
p.s. this blog post makes me sound quite neurotic. I would argue that most days this isn't the case.
