Our Wikispace

Wikispaces As the school year gets going properly, we've now developed our own new wiki, partly to manage, organise and preserve the huge amount of good material written on this blog by our own pupils. It's still in an early stage, but will develop gradually over the next months. Staff and pupils can edit it (not the general public) and help build up our resources. The Link is above, in the right-hand sidebar, and under 'Our Sites'. Thanks to the free service for education wikis from the people at Wikispaces.

(If you're not sure about the term itself, the Wikipedia entry on Wikis, starts :-
A wiki is a collaborative website which can be directly edited by anyone with access to it. Ward Cunningham, developer of the first wiki WikiWikiWeb, originally described it as "the simplest online database that could possibly work". One of the best-known wikis is Wikipedia.)
