100,000 Wikis in the Classroom

Wikispaces has announced that it is setting the goal of hosting 100,000 free, full-featured, wikis for K-12 classrooms:
These wikis are free, full-featured, can be public or private, and have no ads. The response to the more than 10,000 wikis we've given away so far has been incredible. Every day, we hear stories of students working together on their wikis in ways many teachers never imagined: collaborative essay writing, building study guides, sharing links and resources from across the web, and engaging in critical discussion. 100K is a big goal, and we need all the help we can get in spreading the word.
Friends, teachers, librarians, take a look! If you've ever wanted to experiement with a wiki in your program, this is a great opportunity.

I am hearing of more and more research on the role of wikis and blog spots in building communities of teachers and students. A friend of mine is writing her dissertation on that and an old colleague of mind who started her own teacher blog was a case for a different dissertation!

Does anyone know of a good blog/wiki by or for Jewish educators?
