What it is: EdWeb 2.0 is web hosting designed with teachers in mind. Teachers can create a free teacher website in an hour or less! With EdWeb 2.0 teachers can create a classroom site with multiple blogs, podcasts, quick polls, videos, files, forms, announcements, calendars, add photo albums, separate information by subject area, and so much more. The sites can be customized with your own theme, or choose from one of EdWeb’s ready made themes. A classroom website is a great place to communicate with families, give students a place to go when they have questions outside of your classroom, and keep yourself organized.
How to integrate EdWeb 2.0 into the classroom: Post all of your class announcements, important dates, homework assignments, links, podcasts, videos, copies of papers sent home, etc. on your class website for a convenient way to stay in contact with students and families. The site is simple to create and takes no time at all. This is a great hour long weekend project that you and your students will appreiciate all year long.
Tips: EdWeb 2.0 sets you up with a fully functional demo account first. This allows you to play around and see if you like EdWeb 2.0, if you decide you want to use the website for your classroom, you make the site live (this is free). This saves room on EdWeb’s servers for those who just want to take a look but don’t end up using EdWeb.
