I was at a friends house over the weekend and Curriki came up, but until I read about it today I really didn’t know much about it. It is essentially a directed wiki with a social mission, a combination that is pretty powerful in total. In looking through the site it does look like an impressive repository of educational content. Great name as well.
Former Sun CEO hopes the world is his classroom / McNealy says nonprofit Curriki Web site encourages learning:
McNealy has spent most of the past year as the leading pitchman for Curriki, a nonprofit group that’s trying to build a mega-Web site of educational materials that teachers, students and parents anywhere in the world can use, modify, critique and expand on. And they can do all that for free.
