How I Use It
Students need to know the value of being self-directed. With Weebly, my students are motivated to learn about a topic, create a business, or write a blog. Students are able to work through easy to follow directions, to build and share their websites. Weebly offers a wide variety of templates that allow our students to create sites that are unique and engaging.
My Take
I have seen reluctant readers and advanced students create and manage Weebly sites with ease. They are extremely interested in taking ownership of teaching others about their research and opinions. It has allowed them to work independently and has truly taught them the value of digital citizenship.
