PBwiki has made the students take on a much more active role in their learning. They are active, engaged and feel a sense of accomplishment when they participate on the wiki. Is it pedagogically useful? Absolutely!
Thanks to PBwiki, my first grade students are able to journal online for the first time! I use PBwiki in my classroom as an independent writing center because students can publish their work in 3 simple steps. I love using PBwiki to share student work and the parents love it too!
The interface is easy to use. I made my wiki in less than 15 minutes!.
The results have been great. Simple to use (no reading of instructions), bugs that we had with uploads were fixed without having to report them, and the service is fast.
PBwiki was very easy to use. I particularly appreciated the good design of the templates in terms of putting the initial wiki together quickly and easily. My students were generally not familiar with wikis, and the intuitive interface allowed them to get up to speed quickly during our course work. Some students now plan to use wikis in their own teaching.
