Twidla – (Try It)

Mark up websites, graphics, and photos, or start brainstorming on a blank canvas. Browse the web with your friends or make that conference call more productive than ever. No plug-ins, downloads, or firewall voodoo – it’s all here, ready to go when you are. Browser-agnostic, user-friendly.

  4. Playground area to have teachers become familiar with the functions of a Wiki
  5. Class based / subject based wikis
  6. Wikis develop as a collaboration or presentation tool for student projects
  7. Another promotional tool for the school as users search MPJ on the web
  8. Drive web traffic to the official school website
