Abstract

Abstract: This paper reviews how teacher websites can be used to build a sense of community for students and parents. Ways in which this can be accomplished are presented in sample websites created by teacher candidates in a Bachelor of Education program in Ontario, Canada. Various methods include giving students voice through discussion boards and opinion surveys, providing parents information on the site, developing supplementary learning tools, and providing students opportunities to develop social skills through chat rooms and personal pages. It is recommended that schools and teachers develop websites, however research should be considered for their design and feedback should be obtained to evaluate their effectiveness.
