A great site to cannibalise, customize and remix existing webpages as well as learning how to write HTML. Super also for student to create "fake" pages and announcements with incredible realism. Lots of potential for project based work, advertising (eg App design), PSHE issues etc Nice example here: http://dhcooper.makes.org/goggles/dhcoopers-remix-of-bbc-news-us-police-arrest-silk-road-20-suspect-in-seattle
