    Thanks for sharing out Nicholas’ wiki (and thanks to Nicholas for sharing out his thinking). It was great to hear his voice and to think about how to turn over the learning to our students in meaningful and creative ways.

    Giving ownership of learning over to students is the hardest thing for teachers to do. Thanks for such a powerful lesson, taught by non other than a student. Knowing that others are going to read, respond to you, like on a wiki can motivate students like only new technology can! Oh the places they can go…
