Help on getting started with Wiki editing
There are a couple of resources on WikiEducator to help you get started. You obviously have an account already and may need a little help with the basics of wiki editing.
Well done in your page. I am trying to copy what you have done but I need to do a lot of work.
I am also interested in your teaching. This week I have all classes of elementary school it is fun but leaves little energy to do anything more.
How did you manage to persuade your school to communicate with other schools.
I have tried here in Japan but I just get nods and smiles. I have to try again.
Thanks for the kind words and I can imagine how tiring it can be to have all these classes. Communicating with other schools was something I have done since I got connected - the school was not. I did not ask and just did it - first from home (students would bring me their intros to class, I would type them at home, send them and then print the answers, which I took back to school and students glued them in their copybooks. As time went by and the school became more connected, it became easier.

Thank you for the warm welcome, Patricia. I tried different layouts for my user page to practise editing pages but could not find a way to centre the link below my picture on the right hand side.
Where do I find more advanced editing tips?
