The single most important technology type thing I have done in my career has been creating a classroom website. And let me tell you, it has changed me and everything that I do technology wise. I started my first website years ago and it still continues to grow and change (Check my class website out here!) This summer, I am teaching a few classes on how to create a website and what to put on it. I feel this is so important- when I created mine, I just kinda started and added things as I went. I've never been much of a planner when it comes to that. Now fast forward 5+ years- planning a website can save you tons of times. It gives you a road map of where you are going and where you want to end up. It also helps you to identify who your audience is- parents, community members, teachers, students. Now, this can change a million times between now and completion time but to help with this journey, I have created a classroom website planning guide. This guide has absolutely everything that I could think of to include! If creating a classroom website is on your summer to do list (and it should be!) be sure to check this out!
