Wiki Inventor Sticks a Fork in His Baby via wired - 5 views

  •  
    There is a new type of wiki called the "federated wiki" that is the new brainchild of wiki inventor, Ward Cunningham. INfluenced by GitHub, this invention lets you "fork" a wiki page and make your own version with the original author having the choice to integrate your changes or keep it separate. This may be a great type of collaborative writing tool for researchers and academicians who often are concerned about adding to a common repository in that the page could evolve to no longer represent their views but their name is still affixed to the page. On the other hand, those who may not understand it, might incorrectly attribute something that has been forked and edited but not approved by the original author. I like the potential, however. For those of you who do collaborative work, this is an excellent read.

    Dear Educators,

    With this webcasting tool, you can connect live face to face with anyone, anywhere, anytime.....family, friends, students, teachers, colleagues, administrative groups, principals meetings, etc. without having to travel.

    You can even promote world peace by connecting with teachers and students in their classrooms worldwide and learning more about each other's country and culture

    The tools for your use include the ability to have live video chat, make PowerPoint presentations, stream video, share your desktop, record and share your presentation, and much more.

    Guests do not have to download any software. They simply click on the link to your conference that you send them, no cost, no travel and better yet, no wasted time.

    This tool is affordable and easily fits into a classroom, school or administartive office budget.

    As a former superintendent in the education system with more than 50 schools spread out 400 miles along a major highway, the ability to communicate with everyone in an efficient, effective and economical manner was essential.

    Hope you find this helpful.

    Best wishes,

    Barry
