WikiKids

Just a quick note here. There is a great example of the use of a wiki in K12 education here in The Netherlands. It is called WikiKids (only in Dutch). They have taken the Mediawiki software and adapted it for use by kids. And now they are starting to create a online encyclopedia by and for kids. It is a great example of kids that work together with other kids, as well as with teachers.

We've just opened another wiki in the same way as Wikikids.nl, in french : http://fr.vikidia.org . Anyone is welcome if he wants to train your french or get information about openning a similar wiki in another language.
