Building a Classroom Website

A classroom website is a great tool for connecting with families, staying organized, and communicating with students. There are countless tools now available that make developing your own website free and simple to do. But where should you start? The basic steps to building a website are:

  1. Determine your purpose - what is the point of your website?
  2. Decide on your audience - who do you want to visit your website?
  3. Make a plan - sketch out a detailed map of what information you want to include.
  4. Choose a look - keep it simple, fresh, and relevant to your work.
  5. Find a website service and create!
  6. Get feedback - ask people to try it out and get good feedback. Try it from different computers and devices.
  7. Let your audience know - share it and encourage visits.
  8. Keep it updated - check back regularly to make sure your site is clear, clean, and communicating what you want it to.
