Links to Free Materials for the FREE WEBSITE PROJECT

I'm offering a "free website project" modeled on the HIGH TECH HIGH approach to make Digital Portfolios in California.
[ 1 ] Ben Staley’s website TinyURL.com/exampledp


[ 2 ] Abel Thon’s website Tiny.cc/AbelSite


[ 3 ] The website of a teacher at High Tech High
TinyURL.com/sunbrett
See the projects at High Tech High  HighTechHigh.org
Perhaps those three sites will touch you.


Then you might go to the next three links:


[ 4 ] The video tour of High Tech High by Oprah Winfrey and Bill Gates


[ 5 ] The short video of “Digital Portfolios for Guidance Counselors”  (a short presentation of 24 slides)

[ 6 ] Perhaps you would like to learn how to make a free website using Google Sites TinyURL.com/sunportfolios5

This page:
>>> TinyURL.com/FWPstart <<<
1.  Every student gets a free website built on Google sites (using their gmail accounts).
2.  Students put their best academic work on display.
3.  Students can choose to put the site "open to the public" (and allow college admission officers to see their work) or "share with teachers and parents only."
4.  The Common App (application form used by over 600 universities for college entrance) has a line called "please enter the link to your online portfolio."   That's where this free website becomes useful.
5.  The student's resume can be shown on the Free Website (as part of the student's career development efforts).
6.  At SunEd High school, we ask students to learn to use Google Drive and Google Docs, so that students can submit materials to teachers online (we have saved LOTS of paper).  The material on Google Drive is available for displaying on the "digital portfolio" (free website).
