Hi, I am also new here and am looking for real suggestions.
As an in service teacher, I want my student teaching to be exciting. We just got a brand new ActivBoard. (Nothing to do with my question, I don't think.)
My MT uses no tech. The kids are pretty saavy, I think they'll catch on to anything. I'm looking for a medium that can do everything.
I want a page for voicethreads, a page for kids to blog, a page to the parents (and that they can communicate back with me), pages and links to what we are studying -kids work/writing/responses, and I want it to look pretty.
I checked out pageflakes and it's not pretty. (am I blind to something?)
Weebly is cool, but I can't figure out voicethreads on that one.
Also, the kids might want to connect with another class. Finally, I'd love to keep the site for future and interviewing.
Thoughts? Is a Wiki my real option? A blog?
