I've never used it for the purpose you require but last year I did run a wiki at wikispaces which has some limited success for online student sharing of work. My Year 11s used it a fair bit to publish research they had done for 1.2 which could then be shared as a class resource. Buy-in wasn't great, however, so I'd say you'd have to spend a fair bit of time getting them used to the system and monitor their contributions.

This is probably a huge question but I hope that some of you might share
what has worked best for you over the last couple of years.

I want to create a forum where my junior students can post their creative
writing or their reviews of texts in a safe environment but also one that
is inviting to the eye, and easy to negotiate.

We currently have Moodle and our techie team is looking into using Google
docs and Google sites more often with staff content (moving into student
use). I have found Moodle a little hard to use in terms of getting large
numbers of kids contributing, but one of our language teachers has loved
it and uses it effectively.

There appears to be a wonderful number of structures that I can use but I
was wondering if some of you might share their preferences and why they're
using one Web 2.0 technology over another.
