These teachers, educators, and administrators have agreed to participate in the project by reviewing and providing feedback and a "score" on a judging rubric for purposes of providing feedback to the students and teachers on this project on some of the wikis. (Each reviewer will have 5-6 wikis depending on the total number of reviewers who are interested in taking a bit.) At the conclusion of the project, they will be asked to provide their observations to improve the methodologies used in this project so that we can be better teachers and that so better best practices can emerge for future projects with the goal to create duplicative projects for teachers around the world to use in the future. (We hope to have 8 members of this panel - 6 wikis each. Two panelists review each wiki.)

During Project Feedback - Week of April 23

Adult experts will give specific feedback to groups within their area of expertise by leaving discussion on the wikis of their group on or around April 23rd and by tagging sites in delicious using our tagging standards so that it will be "fed" to the group wiki research page.
