I haven't done any online book studies before, just "live" ones but if you are looking for any volunteers I'd like to sign up. I'm not sure a wiki is the best choice only because sometimes they aren't very organized and I personally don't think they are very visually appealing. I just a bookmarked this site: http://www.thinkfold.com/ today, though I haven't had time to look it over, but something like this might be better?
Thanks Kelly. I will have to check out your link. I'm planning on using a video too. But, it's my own personal video and I'm thinking the wiki has to be locked. I'm talking to my district and I don't know if they will approve it. :-(
There are some private sites other than wiki's you might look at too like edmodo or present.ly or even drop.io As far as wiki's go I like google sites for it's simple layout, and you password protect all of these.
I just took a look and it looks good! I see you're going to use it for district pd. Hadn't thought about that-good idea. I posted a reply a while ago that said I was part of a wiki book study using Drive by Daniel Pink. I really liked it and so I set one up for our district leadership team for our summer reading. I just got it done. Here's the link--feedback? http://mnwbookstudy.wikispaces.com/

All educational wikis can have those ads removed for free.

Too many people do not have a clear idea about what is a Scooter; and much less than there is a sport based on it. Besides, it is a sport that has evolved a lot from its beginning, but if you do not know too much about the sport is hard to see it as more than a kid game.However, this sport is more than just kids and young people making scooter tricks in a square; scootering is a kind of culture and a lifestyle that has more than 20 years growing to become what it is today.For this reason, we…See More
