Hey Jason: can't believe you are a principal now! As your former Biology teacher, congratulations.

Wikis are an outstanding tool and in District 99, perhaps the hottest technology. With any technology, it must support a fundamental literacy that schools believe in-in this case, wikis can be an essential component of teaching collaboration, cooperatiion, and contribution. Students now longer need to meet face to face to build content, it can be done asynchronously, nor do classes that wish to collaborate in a cross-curricular fashion need to meet at the same time, or in the same building or time zone for that matter-it can be all done in a wiki. See Julie Lindsay/Vicki Davis' Flat Classroom project as an example of how a wiki can be a platform for student learning across cultures.

Glad to see that you are an educator...
