K-12 Blogging, Wiki and Social Bookmarking Resources

Someone who attended my session asked about free resources to use in K-12 settings. I'm really not familiar with this space. Can anyone point her in the right direction?

I would refer her to Will Richardson'd book Blogs, Wikis, Podcasts, and Other Powerful Web Tools for Classrooms. It's available through Amazon.com. He also has a blog: http://weblogg-ed.com/.

I think my previous comment attempt had too many links in it and was flagged as spam. I'm trying again without links this time.

I definitely second the reference to Will Richardson's book and blog. Check David Warlick as well, since he has lots of great resources. Both Warlick's 2 cents worth blog and the Landmark Project are good places to start.

For blogs, try edublogs, learnerblogs, elgg, or classblogmeister.

For wikis, wikispaces is the one I am familiar with.

For social networking for younger kids, try Club Penguin. I can't think of any specific social bookmarking tools for K-12 though.

We have just released edutagger.com, a social bookmarking service for K-12 learners and educators. This may be what you're looking for.
