Wondershare™ Gives Schools Windows Movie Making Software Absolutely Free - AvatarGeneration

Wondershare™ Gives Schools Windows Movie Making Software Absolutely Free - AvatarGeneration | Wiki_Universe | Scoop.it

Tis the season to give back to the community, and this year Wondershare Software would like to help the Elementary, Middle and High Schools in the US, Canada and Mexico by giving away copies of Video Editor V3.1. Wondershare knows that many schools like to use technology in the classroom to help make holiday gifts for parents, and what could be better than a holiday movie for mom & dad?  Or perhaps an educator needs a video editing tool with more “oomph” than what comes free with the computer or something less complex than the typical after-market video editing software packages. Wondershare is devoting itself to contributing more to the community as an IDG invested company, and is proud to give back to schools this holiday season.

#Lead by serving ~ #Wikipedia needs our help!

What is Wikipedia?

Wikipedia is a free encyclopedia, written collaboratively by the people who use it. It is a special type of website designed to make collaboration easy, called a wiki. Many people are constantly improving Wikipedia, making thousands of changes per hour. All of these changes are recorded in article histories and recent changes. For a more detailed account of the project, see About Wikipedia.

How you can contribute

Don't be afraid to editanyone can edit almost every page, and we are encouraged to be bold! Find something that can be improved and make it better—for example, spelling, grammar, rewriting for readability, adding content, or removing non-constructive edits. If you wish to add new facts, please try to provide references so they may be verified, or suggest them on the article's discussion page. Changes to controversial topics and Wikipedia's main pages should usually be discussed first.

Remember – you can't break Wikipedia; all edits can be reversed, fixed or improved later. Wikipedia is allowed to be imperfect. So go ahead, edit an article and help make Wikipedia the best information source on the Internet!

At Wikipedia, 150 dedicated people serve 450 MILLION users.  

 

If this is not leading by serving, I don't know what is.  

 

Wikipedia is one of our most important resources of free information.

 

Please GIVE...

Collaboration is essential in online teaching and learning.  I take a liberal view of the word and choose to think that every time a student participates in a meaningful online discussion, they are truly collaborating as they discuss ideas.
