Stephanie Sandifer's insight:

I have been too busy lately to share this great new development at Wikispaces, so I want to take a few minutes this morning to do just that...

 

Wikispaces has announced a wonderful new feature for educators called Wikispaces Classroom.  Wikispaces was already a powerful and easy-to-use tool for collaboration, but now it includes features that teachers will find even more useful for using the Wikispaces platform for a wide variety of learning experiences.

 

This blog post on the Wikispaces blog provides some essential "getting started" information and I encourage you to explore how to use Wikispaces Classroom with your students today!
