A wiki is a collection of web pages designed so that anyone who accesses the wiki can add to the it in some way.

There are many wikis on the internet and many are designed by and for teachers.
These wikis are used to collaboratively create some very useful and powerful websites.
Some of the wikis I really like are:
**Webtools4u2se.** This is a great tool to introduce teachers to cool tools and what is great about the wiki is that it gives lots of ideas for using the tools. It is designed for school library media specialists, but it is an ideal starting place for all educators. It has a very bright and catchy homepage that is also very informative. It also has a page dedicated to Why Web 2.0 tools?
Tools include all sorts of Web2.0 technologies:
  • audio and podcasting
  • blogs
  • calendars, task management and to do lists
  • drawing, charting and mapping tools
  • news feeds and aggregators (RSS)
  • portal and web page starting tools
  • photo and photo sharing tools
  • presentation tools
  • productivity tools
  • quiz and polling tools
  • social networks
  • video tools and video sharing
  • wikis
