Three Education Wikis for Technology Integration

There are many, many, wikis about teaching with technology. Some wikis are specific to technology integration in one content area while others are more broad and encompass all content areas. These are three broad-field wikis about teaching with technology that are good resources to point teachers toward. If you have a wiki that should be added to this list, please leave a comment and I'll add it to the list.

has great resources and explanations of video and audio podcasting in the classroom. I also like that there is a page about RSS which is an often overlooked topic in technology integration discussions.

is a super resource for information and ideas about using wikis in the classroom.

Learning in Maine Resources started by Jim Burke is targeted toward teachers in Maine (Maine Learning Results are easier to find on this wiki than they are on the DOE website), but the wiki has information that teachers worldwide will find useful.

Your wiki suggestions are wanted, please leave a comment.

My Studiyo, a great online quiz building website, is having a contest in which you can win an Asus Eee laptop or a $50 dollar voucher for Amazon.

I reviewed My Studiyo back in April and was really impressed with how easy it is to build a multi-media quiz. You can read my full review and see a sample quiz by clicking here.
