We all know how important a website can be… more importantly how significant a website can be to communicate learning with students’ parents and families. In the early years of school parents often say that their children are unable or choose not to explain what they did at school. As educators we all know that our time is precious but sharing the students’ learning with their parents opens up the doors to our classroom and creates a dialogue and sharing between students, teachers, parents and their families. A class website helps overcome these barriers and shares their learning with parents and families. But how easy is it to create a class website?

This workshop aims to talk about the effectiveness of a class website - as a form of communication - and show you the basics of how to set up your own class website, quickly and efficiently and how to maintain it with minimal effort. We will look at several web-based platforms to do this with but an emphasis on using, designing and building your own class Weebly as a tool for communication. We will begin building it from scratch with a look at how to create, design and edit pages, add text, photos and embed documents. We will look at how to use your website to survey your class parents and add a class blog to it as well! and for some fun we will investigate some web-based tools to add glitz and glamour to your class website easily.

This workshop is aimed at early years teachers or people new to building a website or Weebly. Bring your laptop, an open-mind and a sense of fun!
