Although I work all summer, this will be my last tech tip for the school year.
Summer is a time to relax and spend time with family. It is also a good time to get caught up on the those things that you wanted to do during the school year. This summer, I challenge you to create a class website. It takes some work to get started, but will be a great resource for parents.
Before you create your site, start by:
See the embedded Google Doc below for page ideas
2 Options for creating a site:
Option 1: Create a site that is updated yearly that contains items like class schedules, information, supplies, a class syllabus, etc.
Option 2: Create a site that is updated weekly with homework assignments and pictures of class projects - If you update your site, do so at the same time (ex: every Friday afternoon or Monday morning) for consistency
Tip: You can also create a website with your department or grade level
I highly recommend Weebly for site creation. Other options are Wix, Google Sites, or Wikispaces
