Hello Katikati Kids,
I am Whaea Wendy and I am so excited to be working with you this year. We are going to have a fantastic journey together and I hope you contact me regularly to share your successes and ask for guidance.
To begin with, you are going to develop your very own websites, that's right! You're own website.
You will be issued with a notebook to keep passwords and notes in. Keep these safe, you will need them EVERY time we meet.
Each fortnight you will find new material uploaded to this blog with tutorials, step by step instructions, links to information, challenges and goals.
You will earn 'badges' along the way that you can display on your blogs to show others just how awesome you are! These will also go on your end of year certificate.
Step 1: build your website
Step 2: create your avatar
Step 3: create a graffiti banner
Step 4: create a glowtxt
Step 5: write an introduction on your home page
Step 6: add a blog page to website
The HOME page of your Weebly Website should be simple and straight to the point. It should introduce you and the purpose of your website. It should be welcoming and interesting. Below are some HOME Page challenges for you:
1. Selfie Avatar
Avatars are a great way of staying safe online as you can have a visual presence that represents yourself but doesn't share a photograph of you. They are great for using in social media settings.
You are to create a 'Mangatar', using FaceYourManga.
Use glowtxt to create a funky welcome message for your HOME page.
3. Graffiti Banner
Drag a text element onto your home page and write an introduction to your site that meets the cyber safety and digital citizenship guidelines.
I have created student accounts for all of you. Your login information will be handed out in class. You must keep this information in a safe and secure place where you will remember to find it.
Your mission is to create a website that shares your learning and successes.
