Wikis are webpages that can be edited, either by anyone or only by selected people. They can be used to support all areas of the curriculum.
These wikis are easy to edit because the toolbar moves down the page with you. You can add interesting features such as videos and polls. A drawback to this wiki is the amount of print on the sides of each page, which make it very busy for children learning to read. Teachers can ask for the ads to be removed from their wiki.
(You are reading one!) Wikispaces is giving away 100,000 free wikis to teachers. It takes about 2 minutes to set one up. The pages contain very little "extra" content, and you can choose to have the toolbar move down with you. The "Help" desk is very prompt to reply.
Below are some examples of primary wikis grouped by subject area:
