Feedback on our classroom wiki

Today we started editing our wiki. I inserted a poll to find out what students reaction is to the wiki. Here are the results:

This is not the overwhelming excitement I was hoping for, but at least the largest portion of them are somewhat excited.  I guess students are not as excited about ICT and web2.0 as I thought they would be.

I teach Physics. My students are the best in the school. These kids really like science. They usually enjoy math. They are usually college bound. If these students aren't excited about publishing to the web and acutally learning skills that will help them in the technology crazy world in which they will work. Insane! Help. What now? Maybe the wiki wasn't my best bet for the first foray into this new world.
