Head on down to wikiville

This is really a very exciting experience for students. Wikiville is still in its infancy. The stated purpose is:

21st Century students building a world-story of life in their home towns.

I think this is an exciting opportunity for students. If you are a wiki teacher, join wikiville. I did the setup tonight and plan to have some of my students work on it tomorrow during time they may have near the end of the class. (I always have extra wiki projects going for those who finish work and labs early.)

Hi Cool Cat Teacher!

So glad to have heard about you and your work over there in Georgia.

Your students are welcome to WikiVille – no doubt they’ll have lots to say about life in Georgia.

I’ve bookmarked all of your ‘stuff’ and will be checking back soon.

Hi Again
Quick update on Wiki contributions – Spain, Vancouver, Thailand and others have now joined in – I’m seeking students who could support WikiVillains with English as a second language if your guys have any time at all in their schedule!
Best wishes
