Why: 
A good website allows you to significantly increase your productivity in the classroom with regard to technology integration.  You can post websites for your students to use, highlight student projects, and organize your own materials for student access.

Coding in HTML takes a while and Google Sites can be limiting in terms of embedding outside content.  The simplest way to make dynamic websites with a high degree of functionality is with drag and drop builders.  Sites like Weebly, Yola, and Wix allow you to design and maintain excellent websites without coding knowledge and a minimum of time.
Goal: To create a webpage and link and embed items that you have created on other sites.

        • You can link words or web addresses, but you must highlight them and set the link in your editor
        • Look for this icon in your editor  link



Embedding - Putting content from another site directly onto your site - does not require you to leave your site to see it

   HTML tags always begin with <...> and end with </...>       
                    (Example: <script>...</script>
