1 No Limits: Building Professional Collaboration Through Wikis Amy Jaramillo and Sandy Johnson IDEAL NM eTeachers, eDevelopers, and eTeacher Trainers

2 Collaboration Collaboration can be challenging when you are working with 50 eTeachers statewide.

3 Forms of Communication Used IDEAL-NM leverages web conferencing, Wikis, Blogs, and to establish strong communication. The need to establish an avenue for eTeachers to collaborate, communicate, and share was evident.

4 Using Wikis PB Wiki Works is used to fill this need. A wiki is a very simple-to-use content management system. Wikis are designed to allow people to create and edit web pages without any knowledge of HTML.

5 The Power of a Wiki Wikis are notable for their ability to provide a common workspace where all can write, revise, edit, and share ideas.

6 Besides collaboration… Wikis allow writers to include images, animations and video to their pages.

7 Wiki Communities Some wikis are large communities that are linked together through a single website. These communities are sometimes called “wiki farms.” Wikia (gaming site with links to games, software, tip sheets, etc) (documents, password protected posts, RSS feeds) are examples of wiki

9 Specific Wikis Some wikis are “stand-alone” meaning the wiki covers a specific topic and the website was created just for that wiki. This is how IDEAL-NM uses their wiki space.
