“Website? I don’t need a website! I’ve got a whiteboard and projector in my room, That’s good enough!”

“I don’t know how to make a web page.”

“HTML? URL? Code? What are those?”

“I write all my assignments on the board.”

“The kids all have planners and a place to write down their assignments.”

“It’s extra work for me.”

We’ve all heard these words or similar expressed by educators that are wary of  using a web site.

The truth be told, I have found that using a web site to communicate my class information has saved me time.  I admit that at first, I did not see the advantage of putting my class information out there. Since I started using a web site, my students and I have information at our fingertips both in school and at home or where ever there is Internet access. I have also found that the site serves me well when I have to go back and review assignments and see what we did during a particular week.

Getting started can be a bit daunting and that is where I have come to like WordPress. It is flexible and can be as elaborate or as simple as you like it. There is technical support available that will answer all your questions. WordPress.com offers FREE hosting. WordPress offers simple tutorials to get you started. You don’t have to know how to write HTML code and there are thousands of available themes out there that can help make your site look like you want it to look.

If you don’t have a web site started, sign up today and give WordPress a try.
