‘Classroom Websites’ and ‘ePortfolios’ Resource Groups



Do you have great resources about creating classroom websites or fantastic examples of a classroom website that you would like to share? A new group at LearnCentral has been created to serve as a repository of resources for easy classroom website design.



This past Saturday on the Classroom 2.0 LIVE! show we had Dan Veltri from Weebly.com. Dan announced the recent release of the new education version of Weebly.  As a result of our conversation, I created this group for us to share ideas, resources and examples of using a classroom website with your students or parents. You can find the link to the recording of the show at: http://live.classroom20.com/1/post/2009/10/using-weebly-to-design-classroom-websites-special-guest-dan-veltri.html.

After our recent show with Dr. Helen Barrett discussion ‘ePortfolios’ on ‘Classroom 2.0 LIVE!’, an ‘ePortfolios’ group was created for people to share resources and examples of student created ePortfolios.  There are already 20 members in the group and I encourage you to join and start a new discussion thread with your links, resources and examples for using ‘ePortfolios’ with students.
