Teachers will create a class Wiki using PBWorks and learn to edit pages, add web links, and upload images and files to create a user-friendly web interface for their students, parents and community to access. Participants will also use MS Publisher to create a class newsletter, create a PDF file of the newsletter, and upload it to their class Wiki. Additionally, we'll investigate several Web 2.0 sites for teacher and student use.
