Drop by every Friday to discover what wonderful website my classes and parents loved this week. I think you’ll find they’ll be a favorite of yours as they are of mine.

When you open the internet, it should kick start your browsing experience, not leave you searching for a bookmark. You accomplish this by what’s called an internet start page. I use iGoogle at home, but for school I use Protopage because it’s flexible, customizable, intuitive and quick. Quick is a big deal for teachers and parents.
I include everything that my students might need to start their tech class experience–a Todo list, links to projects, sponges, a calendar–and I change it weekly, sometimes daily. It has tabs, too, so I offer a different tab for each class. The youngers get a kick out of going to websites from the older kids tabs.
