Great Wikis for Teacher Librarians

I am always excited when I come across collectons of incredibly useful links, especially when many of those have been tried and tested by other teachers, TLs and educators. I also feel humbled by the generosity of those who create and share their knowledge so freely with others.

Below are some great wikis that I’ve discovered, with a wealth of information that you could lose yourself in for hours – or days if you’re lucky enough to have the time!! You could even sign up to some of these wikis and add extra websites that you’ve discovered – after all, that’s why these sites have been created as wikis, rather than websites.

Charles Leadbeatter says in his YouTube video We Think that “mass innovation comes from communities – it’s like a bird’s nest where everyone leaves their piece….In the past you were what you owned, now you are what you share.”

That’s the beauty of Web 2.0 – everyone sharing, everyone collaborating and working together to create knowledge communities.
