Subject: Wiki News Next Week: Wetpaint Goes Ad-Free for DIY Educators
To: Michele Mehl <michele@...
I apologize upfront for the mass mailing, but we took a survey of thousands of educators in Wetpaint's community and they wanted us to make sure you were aware of this news:-)
As you know, many educators are looking for opportunities to embrace Web 2.0 technology in the classroom, however teachers have struggled to incorporate Web 2.0 services that use advertising to monetize. Thousands of educators worldwide have launched a Wetpaint Wiki to extend the learning process out
of the classroom by creating ³click and type² wiki sites that any designated person can edit. However, we've heard from a lot of teachers who are trying to embrace Web 2.0 and Wetpaint in the classroom that they've been unable to do so because of school-mandated ad-free policies.
Please keep this under embargo, but we wanted to give you a heads up that on Tuesday, November 6, we're going to announce that we are making Wetpaint Wikis free for educators.
I thought you might be interested in the news, and how Wetpaint is helping both students and teachers easily create and participate in collaborative forums for discussion, share lesson plans, and distribute class presentations and much more. In addition, I think you'll be interested in how students are taking advantage of Wetpaint Widgets to add third-party applications like YouTube videos, RSS feeds, Google Calendar, Vizu Polls, chat, and more to offer a fully integrated Web 2.0 solution in the classroom.
I¹ve included a few links to some educational wikis for your reference.
Please let me know if you¹re interested/not interested and I'd be happy to send you a draft of the release under embargo (Tuesday, November 6 at 8:00 a.m. EST).
Looking forward to hearing from you.
