This is my first experience with wikis. I'm not so sure I think they will be so useful for me. I really like the website I have created on yola, and the students seem to be happy with it. Since I am just posting information for the students, I don't see where wikis will come in handy. I don't need to have the students adding any information. Also, I am trying to figure out how these are different than social networking sites. It seems like they do a lot of the same things. They do seem to be easy to use. I think they are a good idea for sharing information, but I'm not sure I will be using them. Melissa G

I LOVE animoto. It was so easy creating this math team video. I even posted it to the math team's website. I hope to make more videos from our other competitions to put up on the website.

Creative Commons

I think creative commons is a neat idea. It is a good idea of allowing people to let others use their work under the conditions they like without having to deal with all of the copyright laws. This is especially great in this day and age with the internet and all that is available to people. I do wonder if this will hinder students knowledge of copyright laws. I think it might.
