Following on from my last post, I’m just going to pass on an ‘alert’, because I know from some recent workshops that some have missed out on these.
Thinking of creating a wiki? Have you chosen to use Wikispaces? Then make sure that you join up using the K-12 Teacher option, which you will find at the bottom of the wikispace joining page in small print.
Joining this way provides all the features and benefits that normally cost $50/year – for free. No fine print, no usage limits, no advertising, no catches.
If you are thinking of using the rather excellent VoiceThread tool, then there is now a good education option here too. The features built into VoiceThread are pretty comprehensive, particularly with the latest version.
At the bottom of the page, click on About, and then click on Pro on the About page. Here you will find all the pricing for the professional account, and a small line that explains that VoiceThread is offering a special account for K-12 classroom educators, click here for more info.
Open your VoiceThread account. Then go to upgrade the account – Go Pro! Be sure to look for K-12 Educators click here! because that will get you the free account.
Not sure about VoiceThread, and how to use it? Let Chris Betcher explain!
