It’s time for the 3rd annual PBworks Summer Camp —  the ultimate way for educators to learn how to use wikis in their school. Summer Camp participants will learn the ins and outs of using PBworks, including how to build a secure student-led site, the best way to integrate wikis with existing lesson plans and using interactive media to engage your audience.

This free training program will last four weeks from June 21nd to July 20st 2010. Camp is run by PBworks with help from experienced mentors from all over the world who support campers and share tips along the way.

Each week there will be a specific lesson on how to use your wiki. You will receive an email every Monday with a video, a lesson,  and with links to the homework, examples and more. Campers must review the video, do your homework and meet with us on Tuesday or Wednesday for a virtual presentation.

At the end of the session, Campers who have followed the program receive a free premium classroom wiki for the school year and valuable lessons along the way!
