This site by Edtechinnovators has some excellent resources and information http://www.edtechinnovators.com/EdTechInnovators/Tammany.html .

Start by navigating to https://plans.pbworks.com/academic/. Click on “FREE” account.

Create Your Account – You must use your real name and your stpsb.org email. Choose a password.

Click Next.
Step 2:
Now, go to your stpsb.org email. You will have an email from PBWORKS with the subject:

Click on the link that has been created for you. This will verify your email address and take you to the wiki.

So a wiki is a good place to have students create, design, and store projects in a secure location. Our parish server currently does not block
