I'm Pete Forsyth. I've been working with wikis since the early 2000s, and have focused mostly on Wikipedia.

I created a program to support educators in using Wikipedia as a teaching tool (see here for what it's become) and an online course for learning to edit Wikipedia (see here ).

I'm interested in the Writing with Wikipedia concept for using Wikipedia and Federated Wiki together; I believe that page was started by David Bovill.

What I'm doing here

I've been following Ward Cunningham's work with Federated Wiki for several years. As of 2017, I'm working on two things here:

1. Exploring the necessary technical conditions for effective collaboration. This is mostly taking place at Forsyth Criteria. I will likely start a new wiki devoted to the concept soon.

2. Journaling: Ward attributes this idea to Mike Caulfield, that Federated Wiki is a good tool for capturing ideas from various things I read online. Here's Forsyth journal 2017

I've worked in educational technology since the 1990s. I'm currently exploring applications of federated wiki to education. Most of my day is spent helping faculty integrate technology into teaching as Washington State University Vancouver as the Director of Blended and Networked Learning.

How to use Federated Wiki

How to Wiki is a resource for how to use the Federated Wiki.

Fedwiki Tools is a useful resource.

This site reflects my efforts to engage with the Federated Wiki, under development by Ward Cunningham and others. It's experimental and evolving.
