I have a favorite site – pbwiki – for bringing students together for collaborative writing. There’s a bit of a learning curve for some of my students, especially for many of the developmental students who often don’t have computers at home or the sort of easy familiarity with such websites.
But so far everyone has managed and the ways students work together with the wiki to produce a single piece of writing proves pretty interesting, with lots of opportunities for my instruction along the way.
However, what I wanted to say is that they are changing their name and taking “guesses” (I suspect they are really suggestions) for their new name. In the process, they’re giving away t-shirts. Interested? Go here: http://blog.pbwiki.com/2009/04/21/official-announcement-were-changing-our-name/
