I just started using wikis with my 6th & 7th graders last year. I wasn't too worried about not being an "expert" - after my initial (basic) introduction, the kids and I learned together. They were very engaged with the interactivity, and loved commenting on other kid's pages. I had all the kids add a subpage to our main wiki site (rather than maintaining separate accounts) and I subscribed to the site changes. That way, every time changes were saved, it sent me an email that I routed into a separate email folder. I could scroll through the emails and spot-check that kids were not misusing the wiki for flaming, etc.
