Thing #16 Wikis of Wisdom
The more familiar I am with blogging, the more comfortable I feel about contributing to wikis. I can see many applications for libraries. Librarians could start wikis of wisdom educating students about plagiarism and citing sources. Teachers and students could add their experiences and tips to the wiki. Book talks could be shared on a wiki with a variety of readers discussing books and giving their reviews and ratings. Librarians could also set up a wiki as a collaborative tool to work on plans with teachers. Wikis provide another means of communicating. As librarians and collaborators, communication is essential to building relationships with students, parents, teachers, and administrators.
