How I Use It
I use my classroom wiki for everything! I have a homework calendar, a space for notes, and pages for current and past projects. We use the space for real time as well as at home discussion. Students post projects, upload homework, and collaborate. We even have a special guest login for parents!
My Take
Wikispaces allows educators to generate a password protected website. Pages can be made collaborative so that students can edit and add to them. Pages can also be locked so students are unable to change content. New classroom features allow teachers to post projects and set up group pages that only group members can see and edit. Easily embed websites, forms, and videos.
