Comments from some of those who selected PBWorks as one of their Top Tools 

wikis for digital classrooms 2013

  • “great way for prospective teachers to create and share safely their teaching portfolio; I am able to provide them feedback here, as well; unlike other online portfolios, such as LiveText, pbworks is free and can go with them after graduation and into their own classroom” Sarah Davis
  • “mainly for archiving goodies, somewhat for collaboration” Jay Cross
  • “I almost stopped using wikis about a year ago, but PBwiki brought me back with all kinds of new plug-ins and added functionality, plus it is ad-free for educators” Barry Dahl
  • “Lovely easy wiki software that anyone can pick up and use.” Phil Bradley
  • “We use PB wiki to create wikis for class projects. They are replacing pathfinders that were static pages – the fact that users can edit pages has created another level of interaction in the development of resources for learning.” Jenny Luca
