As this site/portfolio will be used to document and share your work in this course please consider the design/aesthetics and usability features of your website, and take some care in selecting your template etc.

As you build your site, please consider what ISTE Standards you are enacting…

Part 2: Your First Webpage

Part 2) Imagine (and then briefly describe) an innovative way you – and/or your students – might use website/blogging tools for significant teaching and learning in your content area or across disciplines (200-300 words). Don’t be afraid to think outside of the box (or Redefinitionally).

Part 2 will be the first content you post on your website.

Part 3 /  Send Link: Once you have set up your site, send me an email – – with a link to your website. For all assignments please ALERT ME (via email) when you have posted completed work. I can then provide feedback.
