Scholastic Web Pages

Maybe a cool tool...

Well, in an effort to improve communication between school and home, all staff were encouraged to create web pages. Of course, this is a daunting idea to most of us! A colleague and I found this easy template at www.scholastic.com where teachers can get some free space, and create an easy web for students to keep track of assignments, deadlines, homework as well as download any digital documents that teachers wanted to post. It's also easy to link to your school's site. I would say, that after about 1 year, the success rate of this was HUGE. Teachers embraced it because it was easy to manage and update, and students and parents loved it because it made communication so easy (both ways, when the 'email me' link is enabled!) Anyway, if you're looking for a quick and easy way to get some 'technophobes' on board, this might be a ticket! Here's a link to the page I used this year.
