A site maintained by teachers for teachers
Living in a democratic country, we can easily express our own opinions and ideas through online tools and media. A great way of doing this is through having our own personal website. Living in this day and age, I think it is fundamental for every student, not only those who have Computer Studies as their option at school, to experiment with and use such online tools as a way of expressing ones views and learn new things. Some students might think that it is very difficult to create such websites and blogs, but in reality it is not and this is evidentially portrayed through Jimdo, which is very simple to use.
This website creator gives one the possibility to create a website in a relatively short period of time, without requiring any technical or programming knowledge. Students will then have their small location online, where they can place photos, blogs, videos and so much more. This has been in existence since 2007 and can be downloaded also on android phones and tablets, giving more possibility to students who may own smart phones or tablets instead of pc`s. Along with this, one can easily make changes to their websites at any time which suits them. It is very interactive, free of charge and gives students a way of experimenting and trying out new things to help them build up their own knowledge.
