  5. Teacher Web Pages (6 hrs)
    In order for parents and students to stay informed and have a consistent location for information, it is imperative to have a solution available for teachers. The answer to this problem is for teachers to have a web page where information can be located and other useful tools employed. This all day session is going to allow you to begin creating a teacher website. In the morning session, you will learn to use some of the available modules that allow you to add content, links to important sites and documents, calendars for assignments, photo galleries, and more to help you enter into the Web 2.0 world. You will also learn how to embed videos and audio, presentations, and Google Docs into your page. The afternoon session will be used to begin creating your teacher web page so that when school begins, you will have a powerful communication and educational tool at your disposal. If you are a teacher that assigns digital assignments, you will learn how to create an assignment on your teacher webpage, and students can then submit their digital assignments to you.
