wikispaces
About The Tool: Wikispaces is a free and useful web tool designed to give students (or ‘users’ of any kind, really) the ability to share their thoughts, reflect on the work of others, and edit a body of work together. It’s a powerful wiki service that is in use around the world.

Using In Flipped Classrooms: Many teachers who wrote into the ol’ Edudemic account say they use Wikispaces to power their classroom blog. In order to do so, the teachers task students with the responsibility of keeping tabs on what their various projects (many use PBL situations too) are doing. Others wrote in saying that they use Wikispaces as a means to pose questions to a flipped classroom where students must determine the answer in an online collaboration space. Wikispaces has been a solid go-to web tool for many and it’s no surprise it’s being leveraged by flipped classrooms!

A short note about wikis : wikis offer a powerful yet flexible collaborative communication tool for developing content-specific Web sites. Because wikis grow and evolve as a direct result of people adding material to the site, they can address a variety of pedagogical needs which is what we are going to do.. http://gettingtrickywithwikis.wikispaces.com/
