For February 1, 2014: Technology teachers who teach students how to build webpages should visit Weebly, a free tool that is intuitive and easy to use. No knowledge of html is necessary. Simply create a login and begin building pages. Choose from a variety of backgrounds. Then select the type of content you want to add such as image, text and image, slide show, video, etc. and drag it from the dashboard to your page. The dashboard contains your editing choices. Next, upload images, add text, save, and publish your page. It takes a newcomer about 15 minutes to login and create one simple page with an image, text, and link. Children at one school are using it to create a Website to share with their parents. They are very excited that they are learning how to design their very own website.
