[TIPS] - wikis and moodles in classrooms plus Google Earth visual guides

I can't help it! There's SO MUCH to tell you about. :-)

The teacher being interviewed uses wikispaces for her class wiki found here: Remember, the CAIU offers wikis to districts, too, so if you're interested, tell your tech director.
Finally, Google Earth has a new version out, version 4. Very nice. Last year I sent you a link to some Visual Guides for version 3. Here is a link to the Visual Guides for version 4:
