Piggy-Backing


I learned about piggy-backing using a gmail account from a great blog, Digital Goonies. Piggy-backing allows teachers to create account for web 2.0 tools that require an email. Susan states that first you create a gmail account with a name that can be easily shared with your students. It can be as simple as your name (msdavis@gmail.com) Students can then piggy-back off your account by adding anything after a + sign. For example:

msdavis+student1@gmail.com
msdavis+kate@gmail.com

So those of us with students who have no email addresses of their own, this is a fantastic way to make use of wonderful web 2.0 tools.
