Monday Afternoon Session

 

Let's begin with a short survey!

This afternoon will focus of elements that are needed to create exemplary websites. We will share our ideas via Padlet. Then, each of you will also create a word cloud to be incorporated into your site that will let other campers know a little about you.

  • View exemplary (and a few non-exemplary) K-12 teacher websites
  • Use this Padlet to list elements that make exemplary websites. Focus on the following topics:
  • fonts
  • backgrounds
  • navigation
  • scrolling
  • consistency
  • organization
  • other elements

  • Review the Rubric I developed to help guide you in your website development.
  • Take a web development skills assessment (Google Forms) to determine entry level skills and identify "participant leaders" who can provide mini-lessons on specific widgets and Web 2.0 tools
  • Using Google Drawing, create a "Classroom Manifesto" (Dr. Christie's Manifesto) to post on your All About Me site to let your students and their parents know about you and your classroom environment.

  • Homework:
  • Complete your "Classroom Manifesto"
  • Introduce yourself to your fellow campers using this Padlet.

 

Tuesday Morning Session 1

 

This morning, each of you will create an All About Me Website that you will link to the educational site you create later this week.

  • Use the following mindmap for this four-page site.

    About Me

  • Create a four-page site using New Google Sites. The purposes of this site are to (a) become familiar with the web development tool you choose to use, and (b) create a mini-biography for students to get to know a little about you. You will create a link in your main site to this site later in the week. Experiment with the following:

  • Creating new pages
  • Creating a navigation system
  • Choosing backgrounds and fonts
  • Creating links
  • Adding pictures and videos
  • Adding the word cloud that you created earlier

  • Example site created by Dr. Christie
  • Example site created by Lynn Castiglione

 

Tuesday Morning Session 2

 

During this session you will each create a mind map that shows (a) the main sections of your website, (b) how your website will be organized, and (c) your navigation. Once Alice or Lynn have reviewed your map, you will then create the home page for your new website.

  • Create a mindmap using bubbl.us (or a mindmapping tool of your choice) for your new site. One example follows:

    Web Plan

  • Add arrows to your mindmap to indicate your navigation scheme
  • Get feedback on your mindmap from Alice or Lynn
  • Using your revised mindmap, create the first page in your Educational Site
  • Edit fonts, colors, backgrounds, themes until you are satisfied with the look of your main page

 

Dr. Christie's Example

 

Tuesday Afternoon Session 1

 

During this session, you will plan how you can make your site extraordinary by incorporating a variety of media into your site. You will also make decisions on how you can display your students' work on your site.
