A GREAT way for students to use creative critical thinking skills in a self-directed manner to show what they know!

How I Use It
Students can use Wikispaces to create a website that reflects their knowledge gained throughout a unit. It's a great culminating experience. My senior students used it to gather information during their college and career search as an extension of the ERWC Unit: Life After High School.
My Take
I absolutely love this tool because it is easy to navigate and create. Some students feel restricted by some of the nuances regarding formatting, but they definitely adapt. Because it can be collaborative, students can work together to formulate one website. Using Wikispaces is a great way to incorporate the ISTE Standards into our teaching. . .Try it!
