Having a teacher web page can serve many different purposes. At it's most basic level, a teacher webpage creates a web presence for the teacher---connecting them to students and community members digitally. Having a positive web presence promotes our district and our individual classrooms.
In a more elaborate way, a teacher webpage can be an extension of the classroom. This webpage can communicate useful classroom information to students outside of the scheduled block of time they are physically together. A student can access a calendar, handouts and information in a way that was previously not possible.
No matter if you want your teacher website to be BIG or small, having an up-to-date web presence is a great thing. Here are some tips on where to begin in your web planning and some tools you can use to make it.
