Wikispaces Classrooms in the Wild

We’re seeing teachers do great things already with Wikispaces Classroom, our new bespoke product for teachers and students which features our new Social Newsfeed and Formative Assessment features. Here are a few great classrooms to take a look at.

Quite a few Wikispaces Classrooms are already alive with collaboration and communication, like Third Grade Thinkers:

Third Grade Thinkers

Senior Sub School Leader Jo Egan at Mentone Girls’ Secondary College is up to great things at the Science 9 Wiki. It takes advantage of the Projects feature in Wikispaces Classroom to assign different students to different project pages and give them feedback quickly and easily:

Others, like Blair Einfeldt, Junior English teacher at Rock Springs High School in Rock Springs, Wyoming, are using Discussions for Literature Circles and debates. Check out his RSHS422 Wikispaces Classroom:

And we’re always excited when people share their thoughts publicly.

Richard Byrne shared a lovely blog post about his initial thoughts with “Wikispaces Introduces a Brand New Look for Classroom Wikis.”

As did Brian Beierle with “Wikispaces Adds Wikispaces Classroom.”

Over on the Twittersphere, there’s been lots of talk about Classroom:

@j_allen says, “It looks pretty slick.”
@BethRitterGuth says, “Excited by the new Wikispaces Classroom! I can’t wait to show it to our faculty.”
@Sra_Barahona is excited to use Wikispaces for a third year in a row and is “extremely easy to build and very friendly for my grade 1 students.”

@KrisKing @alezeb @nuriasalvador @ellisinwonderla @MsCafarelli @mmatp all shared their interest in Wikispaces Classroom on Twitter as well– we’re excited to hear what you all think! We also recently released Wikispaces Campus, and we know @tim_leister and @mmkrill are excited to try these features out school-wide with their teachers.
