Easy things that you can embed in your wiki to make it more interactive.

Voicethreads related to the topic like this example.










You Tube Videos related to your science topic.







This is a Google video that can be embedded as well.











Straight audio with tools like AudioPal or Divshare or AudioBoo share as a public link from an on line storage facility like DropBox.

Link with Dropbox will look like this...

Jessica's Reading

Here is a recording I made quickly with AudioBoo.

Another way for people to quickly record their thoughts is to use Wallwisher.











You can even embed all sorts of collaborative tools in a wiki so children can quickly add their ideas- the joy of Wallwisher is that all children can add to a wall at the same time. With a wiki only one person can edit a space at the same time- otherwise one person will overwrite the work of another.

Lets get together and make a wiki for our classes.
