Overview

As a teacher in this technological age, you are likely aware of how important to be accessible, inclusive, and digital. Building and maintaining a class website is one easy way to achieve all three. This webinar will introduce you to one of the many free web tools available to all teachers, Wikispaces. We will show you how to build a website in minutes, as well as how to easily add features such as Google Calendars and downloadable files. Participants will learn how to post homework and announcements to keep parents in the loop, and how to create student accounts so students can be active in the class's web presence by creating pages, editing writing, and collaborating on assignments.

By the end of this webinar you will be able to create a free, easy-to-use, website that all of your students and parents can be involved in, bringing your class into the 21st century.

It's been a while since trying Wiki, thanks for the updated information. I may give it a second try now that there is more to do with the program.

Thanks for sharing the information about the privacy settings for classroom use. I'm working on a wiki and collaborating with other teachers right now from home because it's being blocked at my school.
