I have a new way of keeping class notes and outlining. I've created a template page on my wikispace, and set up a page for each chapter of my computer science book. I've started doing it this way after receiving feedback from my students last year and spending some time working with it this year.
In fact, if you have a wiki centric classroom, you really should set up templates for your major items to put in the headings that you need! I'm going to use them more extensively this year!
You can see this week's work including a nifty project using the classtools.net timeline program and a slideshare embedded about technology convergence. We're still finishing up the slideshare, an inevitably, I have students use their whole names.
I'm working to be more organized and intentional so that students know where things are on the wiki, just like they do in my classroom.

Love these tools and looking at your class wikis. I’m excited about trying these things in my classroom this year. Thanks for the links, particularly classtools.net. My husband was justy working on timelines with his grade nine Social Studies. I’ll be sending him there. Very Cool, CoolCat.
This is a great idea for students to do themselves. A great way for highschool, college, university students to keep track of notes they take in class to refer back to later when needed. I always found that if I rewrote my notes, in some manner, the material tended to stay in my head longer. Another great use for wikis, thanks.
