Wikis are web pages that can be created or edited by anyone just by the click of a button. When a wiki is created it is often used by a group, not just an individual. On a wiki there is a button to "edit" the page and then "save" the changes. Many scientist and engineers use wikis.
There are some downsides to wikis. Sometimes the information on a wiki may be incorrect. Since everyone has access to most wikis, anyone can add information. The information found on wikis may not be accurate or have creditable resources. If you use information you find on a wiki, it is important that you double check that information at various sites.
I created my wiki at http://www.wikispaces.com/.
Within my Wiki I discuss the different types of Web 2.0 technologies. Please edit and add to my Wiki.

Monitoring the time spent on the computer and the websites their child is on are two very important items for parents too consider. If parents listen to this short video they could learn how to keep their child safe on the internet.
