The Wiki is spotted by Wetpaint VP… Cool!

Published by at 9:30 pm under AP Economics,Education,Teaching,Technology

I received this email from a Vice President at Wetpaint last week after he spotted our Wiki. Pretty cool; makes me proud of all the hard work my AP students have put into this project in the last few months. I just hope it’s having a positive impact on achievement on tests and on also on the upcoming AP Econ exams! Congratulations to my students for this recognition!

Hi Jason,I came across your blog post about your class using wikis and
Wetpaint. I’m really excited that you and your students have found it
to be a useful tool. This certainly was our hope when we started the
company – that through technology individuals would be able to
collaborate and learn together on the subjects they are most interested

As you continue to use wikis and Wetpaint, we’d certainly
appreciate and welcome any feedback and suggestions to improve the

Best regards,

Kevin Flaherty
