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:
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:
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.
