I am very happy to announce that my book Wikified Schools: Using Wikis to Improve Collaboration and Communication in Education
has been published. Within the next month it will become available at online retailers Amazon.com and Barnes & Noble (and more), but you can get it here now
So what is the book about exactly? It’s a little theory, some practical advice, and part technical “how to” manual. Wikified Schools
answers the “what,” “so what,” and “now what” of implementing wiki use throughout all levels of a school or a district. Specific examples are given describing how wikis can be used to improve business processes, knowledge management, communication, and collaboration for all manner of school-based or district-level teams. In the book I provide very practical advice from my first-hand experiences on getting started, making it work, and sustaining wiki adoption in any organization.
How do we leverage technology - specifically wikis and other web-based tools - to improve our collaboration, communication, creative thinking, problem-solving, and change processes? How do we make better use of our time and better use of technology resources such as server space and email? How do we model 21st Century tools for better communication and collaboration across all levels of our educational organizations? Wikis can transform how educators work together enabling us to work more efficiently in order to devote more time focused on our core mission of educating all students.
