At PENNCREST we offer our staff free, fully-supported classroom blogs/websites using WordPress. All of our school websites are also created using WordPress.
If you are a PENNCREST Staff Member and wish to have a classroom website, please contact the Technology Department. Depending on comfort level, websites can be created with or without direct instruction from the Tech Department.
Here are some instructional materials to get you started with WordPress:
- Create a New Site and First Login
- Creating your Classroom Website using WordPress
- Using Website Plugins
If you wish to use another website tool here are some options:
Google Sites: http://sites.google.com/a/penncrest.org (PENNCREST Google Sites)
Edmodo: http://edmodo.com (Private classroom blogging)
Whether you choose to use a district hosted website or another free option the following policies and site notices still apply.
