I’ve set up a Wikispace for my classroom {click}. I’m thrilled with how easy it’s been to set up. I’m more than thrilled with the fact that they gave me a free upgrade as a teacher.

Thank you, Wikispaces!

I hope that I can find it useful in my classroom with only 2 computers that students can use available.  If nothing else, it’s a place for me to make resources available to students but also to keep them available to myself.  I hate it when I work on something and then can’t find it again. 

Which computer did I do that on?  Do I have it here?  Is it at home?  Did I delete it? 

I’ve taken to mailing everything to myself at my gmail account just so that I have access to it no matter where I am.

I see this as being a long term project — I intend to use this hard work getting this set up in the future.  If I’m teaching 5th grade again, great, I’m all set — if not, well, I can use this as a basis to start the next project for the next grade level.  In the future, I’d love to have the students take part in editing these pages as well. 

Oh, I have lots of plans!  Blogging about Books!  Wouldn’t that be a great book project?  

I’d love input, links to resources, advice, etc.   For now, I’m just going to bask in the glory of how easy this was to do and how useful I hope it will be!
