Got your attention! We kid, of course, and while you may itching for a Cyber Monday deal on this piece of tech,  we were  simply excited to read Wikispaces power-user Margaret Powers explain how she’s used the wearable computing device in her classroom. Is there a new gadget you’re interested in experimenting with in the new year with your students? The Glass Explorer program looks to be taking more inquiries of interest–more information here if you want to try out what Margaret’s doing at her school.

Hour of Code

You’d be amazed to watch the engineers at the Wikispaces office do their thing, and we’re always excited to see opportunities arise for more students to learn the magic of programming themselves. In honor of Computer Science Education Week, educators are invited to host an Hour of Code in their classrooms during the week of Dec. 9th through 15th. Join the fun here, and let us know how you use wikis to share coding with your students! Just a quick gander at the list of ten fastest growing jobs in the past five years will be reason enough to get your students involved.

We hope you’ll check out our Wikispaces Classroom online community for more– free to join, and share any Cyber Monday EdTech goodies you found! Events, gadgets, or just good ideas welcome :)
