How Wiki Software is Changing Communication
- Quote: The United Nations, notorious for endless deliberations, is trying a
technological quick fix. Its Global Compact Office, which promotes
corporate responsibility, has embraced a once fringe social
technologyâ€”the wikiâ€”in hopes that it will help staff in 80 countries
share information and reach consensus with less deliberation and more
Note: Nice quote by an IBM VP as well: “Collaborative software has become a very important part of how businesses will invent and innovate.” I think it’s going to be interesting to see how schools deal with this new collaborative drive.

Dr BJ Gallagher says
Wikis are still so underutilized by k-12 teachers since they are typically blocked by the firewalss of school districts. Since many teachers already have too much paperwork they tend not to complete another piece of paper then sent to IT to get the URL on the “OK” list of web sites. We as professionals need to bombard the It folks with safe URLs.
