WORKSHOP #9: CREATING A WEB PAGE

The following links are self explanatory in terms of your learning how to create web pages, and to teach others to. Online Web Page Builders are free. Microcosoft FRONTPAGE and several others are also quite good to use.

You may develop web pages for family, students, colleagues, parents, or clients. You may also choose to build a multiple page web site, including links to subsequent pages on your "home" page.

Even more useful, you may build a multiple web page **WEB QUEST to guide student inquiry using sites you select.

At some point early on, you will want to choose a topic and search for web sites to place on your page, in addition to the text you write yourself. The most versatile and prolific search engine, though there are many other search tools you can use, is GOOGLE.
