Welcome to EducationalWikis.com!

For those not familiar with wikis, they are a little bit of computing magic.

Yet they hold the promise of dramatically changing the way that we work and learn together.

Invented by Ward Cunningham, wikis are a read/write web technology that allow for easy, fast, and collaborative websites to be built without the need for special software or a lot of training. Adam Frey, from Wikispaces calls a wiki: "a web page with an edit button." Learn more about wikis here.
