History teacher wiki recognized

Robert Maloy, senior lecturer, Department of Teacher Education and Curriculum Studies, announced that resourcesforhistoryteachers, a wiki founded and administered by Maloy, is the national runner-up in the Best Educational Wiki category in the 2011 Edublogs Awards. Edublogs is a national organization that has recognized educational technology work since 2004.

This is the second year in a row that resourcesforhistoryteachers has received recognition. Last year, the site was honored by the Massachusetts Computer Using Educators organization as its Webbie Award winner in the higher education category.

The resourcesforhistoryteachers wiki receives contributions from students in Maloy’s courses as well as from teachers and students in K-12 schools. Students also serve as co-editors “so it becomes a learning experience for them as future teachers,” Maloy said.

See: resourcesforhistoryteachers enjoys a strong readership with more than 2000 visitors a day during the school week.
