Announcing Wikispaces Classroom
http://blog.wikispaces.com/2013/04/announcing-wikispaces-classroom.html
Announcing Wikispaces Classroom
Wikispaces Classroom is a brand new product from the Wikispaces team entirely and exclusively for teachers and students.
Over the years weve distilled what we believe and do into one simple thing: help teachers help students. And Wikispaces Classroom is our attempt to take that to the next level.
For Wikispaces Classroom weve designed an entirely new way to manage and talk about everything that goes on in our class. Featuring a modern newsfeed, and a simple way to manage assignments, announcements, events, and all of your resources and work, its everything you and your students love about social networking but private, in your classroom, and integrated with your day to day work.
And of course, Wikispaces Classroom is free for teachers and students.
You can create a new Wikispaces Classroom now, or convert an existing wiki to Wikispaces Classroom in your Settings area.

WikiMindMap
http://www.wikimindmap.org/
WikiMindMap is a tool to browse easily and efficiently in Wiki content, inspired by the mindmap technique.
Wiki pages in large public wiki's, such as wikipedia, have become rich and complex documents. Thus, it is not allways straight forward to find the information you are really looking for.
This tool aims to support users to get a good structured and easy understandable overview of the topic you are looking for.

Wikiversity
http://en.wikibooks.org/wiki/Wikiversity
Wikiversity
Wikiversity is a collection of open content courses that are being collaboratively written on this website.
This site is a wiki, meaning that anyone, including you, can edit any course module right now by clicking on the edit this page link that appears in every Wikiversity module.
The primary audience of Wikiversity are students. This differs from other open content learning centers such as MIT Open Courseware, whose primary audience are fellow instructors. The difference is in the type and focus of material in a course.
At one of those websites, the focus is on syllabi and schedules. Wikiversity's focus is on putting out enough material to actually explain course concepts to the student. Educators are welcome to use this material under the GFDL, but facilitating this is not the project's primary goal.
Wikiversity and wikibooks have a lot of overlap. This section discusses the differences between them, and how to determine which you should publish at. The major difference between the two is the difference between a course and a book. A course combines multiple methods of learning, to increase the chance of a student learning.

My Brilliant Failure: Wikis In Classrooms
http://kairosnews.org/node/3794
My Brilliant Failure: Wikis In Classrooms
I was using wiki during a six-week workshop on visual design in web development for non-experts.
I used the wiki to create presentations, and allow the class to edit the content, in addition to completing tasks on pre-created empty links and SeedPostings (as they are called in wiki-speak).
I wanted to see something magical happen, and it didn?.
Why something that seems so obvious to me now could not have been seen before is just mind-boggling. In a way, I see this experiment as a brilliant failure.

2006 Wikipedia CD Selection
http://www.sos-schools.org/wikipedia-for-schools
2006 Wikipedia CD Selection
SOS Children have released a free encyclopaedia (with 8000 images and 4000 pages worth of text) made up of articles cleaned up and selected from Wikipedia, and aimed at improving awareness of the world around us amongst 8-15 year olds.
They include articles of particular interest to children (dinosaurs, space travel, the Solar System, plants and animals) and a wide variety of other scientific and geographical topics.
We judge the content to be child friendly and allows a ?urfing?experience with many cross-linked articles within a safe offline environment.
The encyclopaedia can be downloaded as a zip file together with a copy of the SOS Children UK website with some details of our work in 125 countries.
