  • Framing The Session In our last session, we set up templates for students to use to populate their wikispaces with the information needed to complete a virtual science fair. But what if we want to add more to our project. What if students want to add files, graphs, images, or maps? What if they want to track where people come from who visit their space? What if they want to add a poll to their space? All of these can be done virtually with a wikispace!
