Other Wiki Ideas for the Classroom

 

 

ePals

 

  • ePals is the leading provider of safe collaborative technology for schools to connect and learn in a protected, project-based learning network. With classrooms in 200 countries and territories, ePals makes it easy to connect learners locally, nationally or internationally.
  • Watch the video below.  It's not the most exciting video ever produced (however the talk show host deserves to be in prime time), but it allows you to hear from an actual teacher about the ePals network.

  • Now scroll back to the top of the page and click on the ePals link.  This should open a new browser.  Sign up for ePals (yes another account) and check out the site for a few minutes. 

 

Global SchoolNet and Travel Buddies

 

  • This is another good site to help you link up with other classrooms around the world to work on collaborative projects.  Click on the "Projects Registry" link on the left to access the current projects.  It's a little light right now because it is summer.  Be sure to check out the "Online Expeditions" link on the left.

 

Other Great Sites to Connect Your Students Globally
