Session #4 - Creating Websites with Weebly

This session will focus on building websites with Weebly. After being inspired at a PD conference to get students creating/producing, I've had students create websites for various topics. Students are engaged in the process and impressed by the product. I'll show student models and lessons learned as far as how to manage the process. I can also share how I've created websites to blog and to share student work with a larger audience. Participants will leave with a working/published website and resources for creating student projects.
