HOW DO WE USE THIS WIKISPACE?


Hmmmm where to start? Maybe it would be worthwhile for you to read the Help files above or view the videos at:
http://www.wikispaces.com/site/tour#introduction or download this word .doc file which gives an overview of all the features - or visit HELP FOR K - 12 TEACHERS - a page set up by Wiki to assist you. Download Handouts and a PowerPoint to show your staff etc what Wikispaces are all about.

Below is the menu bar seen when you select Edit This Page - I have not pointed to to common text and table icons.

Editing the NAVIGATION Space is just as easy - click on the edit navigation link at the base of the Navigation Space (The Links on the Left of ther screen. It will open the Navigation Space - here you can add new links to Pages (I find double spacing makes the links easier to separate)
To create a New Page merely click on the New Page at the top of the Navigation Space - under the Actions heading.
Create your new page and then create the link to it in the navigation Space.
