Wikispaces Does it Again- Only BIGGER This Time

In my last post I talked about Wikispaces surpassing their 100,000 free wikispaces for K - 12 educators give away. I was hopeful that with the 100,00 mark surpassed that they might continue to offer wikispaces to educators that are advertising free. My hopes have been realized! If you didn't hear the news, here are some highlights from the press release:
Two and a half years ago we decided that all K-12 teachers should have advertising-free, private, unlimited use wikis for free. No fine print, no usage limits, no catches. So far, it’s been a great success. We’ve given away over 100,000 free K-12 wikis used by over 535,000 educators and students!
We have worked with hundreds of you every day and heard your stories of engaged students and excited teachers. We have loved supporting such a vibrant community and learning how to build a better service for you. It’s what gets us excited about coming to work every morning. Thank you for making this such a rewarding experience.
