"We use DeskNow in our division. Each student from K-12 has an email address. Many have not activated them. My grade four and fives activated them for the first time this year. I think this is a useful service for divisions to offer. It is monitored.…"
"On PBWorks, you can make student accounts in your wikis (and they are ad-free). I believe there is a way to do that in Wikispaces, too. If you let them know you're an educator, they'll give you a Plus account that is free from…"
"A good alternative for a wiki resource that 'creates' virtual addresses for students is PBWorks.com. Earlier on (April 09), my wiki had been shared with students in this way - a tool in the Settings area that creates as many logons and…"
I'm fairly new at doing a blog with students. I have been trying to work it in with all of the facets of my Grade 3 writing program. During different sessions we have used our blog for Modelled or Shared writing. Sometimes I have…"
"Thanks, Daniel. I had heard you could do this but didn't know how. It appears that you need to insert one name at a time into the box. How do you upload the list? Also, do I create the passwords for the kids or will the program do that for me?"
"Wikispaces has an excellent user creator. You can upload a spreadsheet or text list of student names and requested usernames. It will create them all at once and link them to your wiki for you. Very handy!"
"Re-encode the files as mp3s, that will cut the file size down immensely.
Also, this probably won't help but if you use wikispaces it is very easy to embed sound files so they stream and don't have to be downloaded."
I use imeem to host audio. This works just like YouTube does for video, only the concentration is on audio files. The files can be spoken word (interviews, language practice, etc.) or music files. If you have a class wiki, moodle page or…"
Hi!I'm looking for a simple way to post audio files for students. Many of my students are on dial up connections at home and can't get the files that I inserted into Dreamweaver pages on a page on my class blog ( http://mswift.edublogs.org/student-work/ ). At my school they play nicely. At the kids' homes, they're getting messages that they have to download the file, which takes a LONG time on dial up. I was thinking I could use Gcast or…See More
"wikispaces works fine. You can put in anything for the email addy on sign up and it doesn't matter. It says you need to click on a confirmation link in the email but you don't. The account works just fine without clicking anything at all."
I'm guessing this has been discussed before, but I couldn't find the answer. Which wiki tool should I use if my students don't have individual email addresses? I want to have individual logins for them so I can keep track of their contributions. (They're only in Grade 3) Ideally I would like to use wetpaint because I can get the version with no ads for educators.
"Thanks, Jennifer and Nancy. I will look into both ideas. I also might just use Notebook 10 and import the pages into a wiki (if that's possible). I've just finished recording Narratives on Audacity and publishing them into a web page,…"
I teach Grade 3. I am working toward more fully integrating technology into my teaching. I have had a web page for many years and a blog since 2007. I look forward to working on wikis and doing video conferences with other classes.
