As a favor to my friend, Dr. Curtis Bonk, from Indiana State University, if you are in k-6 and using wikis, please take time to fill out this survey. (It uses surveyshare, which BTW is my FAVORITE tool for such research.)
“A research team from Ohio University and Indiana University is conducting a study of the use of wikis in the classroom by early childhood and elementary teachers and would love those of you using wikis in these age groups to help. If you are, their online survey is at:
Those taking the survey will be entered in a drawing for a free iPod nano. Anyone volunteering to be interviewed about their experiences will be entered into a second drawing. The survey will take about 10 to 15 minutes to complete. When you enter the survey site, you will first be asked to initial and date a consent form to indicate that you agree to participate in the study. If you have any questions, the researchers can be contacted via at the emails listed below.
