I have been asked to present to the school board concerning my use of wikis and blogs with my students. I have my "educator" reasons for using them in the classroom, but does anyone have any specific research or studies that I can quote? I'm looking for something that will be easy for them to understand - not full of educational jargon. Thanks.

I've been working on some research on wikis. I haven't been through it all yet, but here are links to some of what I'm using as reference. Hope these help.

Thank you! I will take a look at these links. I really appreciate this.
Thank you. I appreciate all the help and suggestions that you give me. I'm the only person in my district using the 2.0 technology so I don't have many teachers to work with!
