A sandbox is a term that wikis often use to describe the area of a website that should be used for pure play, so for this discovery and exploration exercise, go to the sandbox portion of the California Curriculum Connections wiki -- go ahead and play! The magic password is "library."
1. Visit the California Curriculum Connections wiki, play in the sandbox, then go to a page devoted to one or more of the topics covered in the 9 weeks of the School Library Learning 2.0 course. Add a new curriculum idea.
2. Create a post in your blog about the experience. How might you use wikis?

*NOTE: The CSLA2007 conference wiki and the California 2.0 Curriculum Connections wiki were created using the free version of the Bay Area based PBWiki, a tool that lets you create webpages that anyone can edit. Since then, PBWiki changed its name to PBWORKS.
