Share Your Wikispaces in Education Story

We’ve given away more than 100,000 K-12 education wikis, and now we’re giving away 250,000 more.

To help spread the word, we would love you to share your experiences using Wikispaces in education, tell others about our new K-12 offer, and help us reach those looking to bring technology into their classrooms:

  • Host our new counters on your blog, website, or wiki.
  • Share your Wikispaces stories by commenting on this blog post, tagging your Twitter messages with #wikispaces, or sending us an e-mail at help@wikispaces.com. We want to hear what you did with the first 100K wikis and what you plan to do with the next 250K! You can follow the tweets right here on our blog.
  • Add your educational wiki as an example for others at http://educationalwikis.wikispaces.com/.
  • Email your fellow teachers, school administrators, and others who need to know about our offer and encourage them to spread the word too!

And make sure to join Steve Hargadon, Classroom 2.0, and the Wikispaces team for an online celebration this Thursday at 5pm PDT. Come share your experiences and tips with other educators, and feel free to ask us any questions you’d like. Find out more details and join in the conversation. We look forward to seeing you there.

    Last summer I began using Wikispaces for Professional Development for my colleagues at the high school where I was the instructional technologist. When I was switched to teaching five English classes, I created another Wikispaces site to use with and for my students. Wikispaces is amazingly user friendly.

    We used the discussion feature on wikispaces to host an ongoing, online discussion of our middle school summer reading assignment. Students, teachers, and administrators posted discussion questions and answered those of others all summer long.

    We were able to keep our space safe by distributing logins to students through school, and limiting membership to staff members and those logins.

    Anyone can visit the site, though, so come take a look at what our students had to say!

    This is my first wiki, and it is going to allow my students in Hudson, Ohio, to interact with students in Wailuku, Hawaii. I am so excited to start this project. I also have another page to journal and guide the development of a brand new technology club at our school. Thank you so much for making these projects possible.
