Problems Adding Digital Projects and Products
I have been wanting to see some examples of student and teacher work, so I've posted a few from my school and district to get things started. However, I wanted to organize the information into a table and found I couldn't add links into a table cell. I had to create the link in Word and then copy and paste it into the table. I thought I created some links directly in WetPaint using the Link button in edit mode, but they disappeared. I am much more familiar with Wikispaces, so I'm not sure what I did wrong. Any suggestions? Anyway, I did get some links added and would love to see examples from other schools!
