Abstract

This paper reviews how within a Bachelor of Education program teacher candidates learned to create classroom websites. Teacher based websites were developed in the ‘Human Development and Learning’ course where theories of human development and learning were applied to the development of effective websites for future students. There are numerous benefits for teachers to use classroom websites; however barriers for current teachers to use these sites include the lack of technological skills and time to develop websites. In order to address these barriers teacher candidates learn to create their classroom websites while in a teacher education program. This paper shares the benefits of classroom websites, barriers to teachers using such sites, and best practices for implementing such an assignment in Bachelor of Education programs.
