I can’t tell you how excited I was that pbwiki upgraded with a feature that students can collaborate WITHOUT an email address. Hence, http://srsmusic.pbwiki.com was created. I immediately wanted to set up accounts for all my students in my music classes. Here is the big decision: should I create the accounts and tell the students what their username and password is, or let them create their own username and password? I did the latter. Using a google form, students told me what they wanted as a username and password. I then spent the evening setting up all the accounts on pbwiki. What amazed me the most was the level of passwords the students created. I even have three student passwords that are so difficult I want to make sure that they want that particular password.
I can’t wait to see how much the students will collaborate with the new site. So many of my students are digital students so, understanding the basic features of a wiki and formatting will be easy to teach. Of course, the more I personalize it the better. Sunset Ridge has gone WIKI!
