Planning to Present at a Educational Conference?

Many of you have asked us for materials you could use to help introduce fellow teachers to Wikispaces. We have just added some to our teacher’s help page that we hope you find useful.

There’s a customizable presentation for those times when you need to talk in front of your colleagues and would love an outline all ready to go. We introduce Wikispaces, show how it can be used in education, and go through the basic steps of using and editing your wiki.

We also produced a Getting Started handout that you can print and give to colleagues. It contains step-by-step instructions on how to start an educational wiki, begin editing your Wikispace, and create accounts for your students. It’s a great and simple reference guide for people to leave your presentation with.

Try these out and let us know you think at help@wikispaces.com .

    mkang,

    We don’t yet have a reference guide for students. There are other ways to introduce them to Wikispaces, though.

    They could watch our tours at http://www.wikispaces.com/site/tour to get a sense of how to edit and add material to their Wikispace.

    Alternatively, you could go to our teacher’s help page at http://www.wikispaces.com/help+teachers#toc8 and download the Getting Started handout for teachers. You could use some of that material to help familiarize your students with Wikispaces.

    Best,
    Sarah
