How-to Week, Day 1 - Using Wikispaces

One of the things that I learned by presenting at MLTI's Summer Institute is that despite my belief that editing wikis and blogs should be core skills, there are a lot of teachers who don't know how to do those things. Therefore, each day this week I will post a tutorial about some of the basics of using blogs and wikis. Today's tutorial is about using Wikispaces.

Embedded below is a slideshow outlining the basics of setting up a Wikispaces wiki.

Embedded below is a video tutorial that I created about setting up a Wikispaces wiki.

If you're not sure what a wiki is or you're looking for a video introduction to show to other teachers, Common Craft's Wikis in Plain English is the best explanation you could hope for.
