Exciting News!!!! A new digital writing tool!

Today was a big day for the IMA kids-we started our own websites!  Using the templates from  IWeb, students created their own websites, crafting a welcome page and an "all about me" page.  Students also learned to use I-Photo and Google Maps.  The websites are part of the school's intranet and cannot be viewed outside of our school's network and our classroom community.  Each child's site is monitored by me and is password protected. 

Students intend to publish finished writing projects, poetry, and research.  They will also keep track of their reading life on their websites. Students will still use the wiki for drafting, revising, and editing written projects.  Each child's website will become a digital portfolio for many projects.  IWeb provides students with many creative options, so we look forward to sharing our work with you in the near future. 

If you would like to learn more about IWeb, Apple has a great website:
