Adventures in Educational Blogging: Which Wiki? or The Trouble Without Email

A fifth grade teacher from White bear Lake, Minnesota, Susan Sedro is looking at wikis versus blogs for different purposes, and comparing PBWiki & wikispaces. There are three criteria for this wiki project: readable to families and other schoolclasses, protected from spam but still aloowing comments from outsiders, and trackback of changes, who did what (and eventually find a malicious editor).

Wikispaces announced not long ago that for k-12 education wikis will be free of ads, and could be private for others than the users - with no charge (usually you need to pay a small fee for this service. But one problem may be that students do nto have an email , as they need to get individual invitationf to be able to contribute and edit the blog.Adventures in Educational Blogging: Which Wiki? or The Trouble Without Email

Hi, Adam from Wikispaces replied to my blog article and said that the lack of email addresses is no hurdle for teachers. All we need do is chat with Wikispaces and they will go in and add our students as users of the wiki -- no email addresses needed. I ran out of school year before being able to make use of this offer. Hopefully I'll be using it next year instead.
