What is a wiki?
Wiki is taken from the Hawaiian word for "fast", a wiki allows lots of different users access to edit and create various content. A wiki uses editing tools similar to Microsoft Office or Apple's IWORK. A wiki can be a collaborative resource for students, teachers, and parents to observe student work or for students to learn to work as part of team both in school and out. Wikipedia is of course the most widely known wiki page.
