Wikis are incredible tools, whether you are using them a la Web 1.0 to publish information easily, or Web 2.0 to engender conversations and dialogue with others about common projects. In this hands-on session, you will create your own wiki using and request a free education version (without advertisements), quickly add content, and share images. There are many ways to use wikis in the classroom!

The following video was recorded from a conversation I had with Vicki Davis while I was in New Zealand two years ago. It's amazing how much has happened in Vicki's life since then--she has the blog entries to prove it and travel too!--so I look back on this video as a way to travel back in time to the start of it all.
