In preparation for the upcoming SY 2009-2010, I would like to find out which would you introduce first to to the teachers especially since most of them aren't pro-technology. All this time, each class webpage is submitted to the Webmaster (in MS Word format) and it gets posted in the school website on a monthly basis. That makes the page very static.
We now decided that creating a dynamic class webpage will enhance parent-teacher communications through blogging
. Something that the teachers themselves can update on a weekly basis at least. Most likely we will go with Edublogs
. But how about posting the class rules/policies, supplies, etc. - would a class webpage be more appropriate? Since budget is a concern, I thought that maybe using class webpage on Scholastic.com
since it is free. With that, the teachers can create a menubar on the page. Wondering if that too can be done on blogs?
How would you go about this dilemma? I appreciate all your replies.
