Classroom Website Planning Guide

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!

  1. Hi Leah,
    I completely agree with your opening statement in your post. Ever since I decided to build a useful classroom website that became the launching pad for what I have learned in educational technology. It has led me to blogs like yours where I continue to build my skills and learn from other educators. I have started using more Google products also, but our district uses School Loop as our website host. Thanks so much for sharing your guide. I plan on sharing it with others. I have been posting my site on your Techie Tuesday, but here is the link also:
