Last year I took my first steps into creating wikis with my students. I created one for a computer
class and one for a math
class. I made up some ids for them to share. This year I want them to have their own ids.
I've also set up a del.icio.us account for the school and I think I would at least like to let the older kids create their own accounts.
Finally, I am going to try a class blog for math class.
First, I'd like to know how different teachers approach having the students create their own user names. I will be teaching 6th through 8th graders. I'm sure not all of them have email accounts which wikispaces and del.icio.us require.
Second, I've created a parental permission form to let the families know about my plan and I'd like to know if anyone does this and what has worked in that regard. I'm curious if some parents will choose to withhold permission for these web sites.
Thanks in advance.
