8 Great Web Tools to Create A Website for Your Class

8 Great Web Tools to Create A Website for Your Class | Curriculum resource reviews | Scoop.it

Creating a website for your classroom should be one of your tech priorities for this school year. There are so many educational benefits to having a virtual space for your students. First off, students will have access to a learning space that is open to them whenever and wherever they are. They can use it to check class assignments, important dates, schedules, school events, announcements and many more.

 

Another good thing about setting up a website for your class is that it encourages students to connect the learning that is taking place inside the classroom with the one in the virtual space. This can be done through students adding postings, media materials ( including images, videos, audio clips...etc). They can also use it to collaborate and work together on classroom projects.

Karen Bonanno's insight:

Easy to use tools that could be useful if web site creation is on your agenda.
