Making the Most of Your Class Website
Educational Leadership Volume 68, Number 5, ISSN 0013-1784
Students today are electronically connected, and they expect their learning to be connected as well. Many college students prefer online classes, even if they live on campus. Students who do take face-to-face classes often expect the class to have an online communication component (such as a discussion board). However, despite the fact that K-12 teachers have easy access to technologies to prepare students for this style of learning, they often fail to use them. One easy way to incorporate technology to extend learning is through a class website. Using higher-level websites at the K-12 level is a valuable way to extend learning past the school day, but they also support lifelong learning. In this article, the author discusses how to extend learning with your own class website. (Contains 1 endnote.)
