How I Use It
I initially used Weebly to create my own class website. This allowed me to link websites, articles, and classwork for students to access on laptops and iPads. It was so easy to use. I also created blogs for students to communicate their ideas about our learning. Now I use Weebly for Education so that students can each create their own websites to use as digital portfolios. I had the students download the free Weebly app on their iPads so that they could easily upload photos of their work to subject specific pages. (It works best to create blog pages because those are the kind that work on the iPads.) Now I never carry papers home with me to grade. I linked all of their pages to my class website so now to see their work all it requires is a simple "click". It is also a great way to share their work with parents and administrators. They take great pride in their work because they know it is published on the internet for a larger audience.
My Take
I love this product! It is so easy to use and the websites it allows you and the kids to create look amazing. This tool allowed me to streamline my process for getting my students the resources they need to learn. They can just click on a link on my webpage instead of typing long URL's. It is also great because the students can easily make their own websites as well. They feel so empowered when they realized that others can view their work online.
