Thanks for all of your comments and responses to my question. Perhaps the relative success of using Wibbitz depends upon the platform (if that's the right term!) upon which the web page rests. Interesting idea though.

Jacqui Stok's curator insight, May 4, 2013 10:52 PM

Rick is a wealth of knowledge when it comes to Middle School (10 to 15 year olds). I highly recommend all of his books. He has a strong focus on pedagogy, and he takes into account who students are and where they are coming from. When I read his books I can't help but attempt to put together my understanding of his worldview.
