Face of Your Classroom
Use FREE Web Creators to create your Face of the Classroom site
You can use an online resource such as Weebly or Google Sites to create your own web presence in a drag and drop interface. Web sites enable users to quickly create a web presence using widgets (small onscreen tools, like calendars, counters, etc.) provided by their company. No software has to be installed because they are cloud based, and free. When you create an account you are given a URL for your new web site. Weebly is one of the easiest ways for teachers to have a website. You can create multiple pages as well as a blog on your Weebly site.
Weebly provides an easy to use drag and drop environment to help you create your site. Templates for the design of pages and menus is provided as well. Get started by checking out the following resources:
