Skypecast and Wiki Awards Ceremony Tonight



I'm going to attempt to host my first full skypecast and we have an ambitious agenda. This is the culmination of amazing week of wikis at our k12wiki.wikispaces.com. The pages were absolutely amazing and I'm going to feature them in the upcoming weeks.

I hope you'll join us tonight at our 8 PM EST Skypecast. Here is the information and the agenda. I will say that less than 5 points separated our top five scoring wikis! It was very competitive! The winners will be in your classroom!

Here is the plan:

SkypeCast at 8 PM EST tonight, Monday, October 30th!


1 - Go to (https://skypecasts.skype.com/skypecasts/skypecast/detailed.html?id_talk=45270) on Monday, October 30, at 8 pm EST. (I will be there at 7:40 to test things out.)
2- Sign in.
3 - If you have trouble - send a text message via skype to coolcatteacher for help. (Before the show starts, after it starts, it will be too late!)
