This web site features an extensive navigation system to accommodate some of the many classes that I have taught at the secondary school level. It was used until I was appointed as the Virtual Classroom Online Coordinator for Dallas School District, Dallas, Oregon. Since the appointment happened mid-year, some of the classes do not have a full curriculum. A current challenge in this dynamic web site is the importing of weather data from a personal weather station. This is an ongoing project.
Students enrolled in my Computer Applications class were provided instruction in creating blogs. One of the means to demonstrate a blog to students was through the creation of a Computer Applications Technology Blog. Students were encouraged to blog about their interests, and others were requested to comment on their posts. Allowing students to blog about their passions in a technological genre that they were familiar with created high levels of engagement.
