Awful Library Books

This site is a collection of library holdings which are amusing and questionable for public libraries trying to maintain a current and relevant collection.

Wikis

The WANDA Project

This Wiki shows an excellent example of using wikis as a way for students to communicate as they work together on literature circles.

More, More, More Wikis!

Just follow this link to many wonderful Educational Wikis. True, some are better than others, but it is a treasure trove of information - and instructive on how wikis can be used in the classroom.

MPS Information Wiki

This has some excellent information regarding information literacy.

Millard Policy: DO NOT use Wikis or Blogs when students are involved unless they come through a school-district approved protected product. You may create Blogs and Wikis on School Fusion for classroom use. Gaggle also has provisions for collaborative learning, blogging, and social networking.

BUT Millard teachers can have their own professional presence on both public wikis and blogs.
