The Ux, or User Experience, is the overall emotions generated by the user of a product or service. A successful product or service satisfies the user because of the experience it creates. The Ux for Weebly is fantastic.
The Ui, or User Interface, is the way a user goes about interacting with a product or service. A successful product or service has an easy to use interface that is intuitive, simple but lush, and fosters a feeling of contentment. The Ui for Weebly is extraordinary.
Weebly, the free website building service I use to make this website, brings the Ux and Ui together in a clean, simple, and easy-to-use free service. The results are gorgeous, current, and rich with a modern web design look and feel. If you are seeking to showcase your classroom, your students, and all their excellent learning, creating a class website with Weebly will produce a desirable, professional, and polished product any student, teacher, parent, or school would be proud to call their own.
Ms. Bartholome, a kindergarten teacher at Pinecrest, was looking for an attractive and straight-forward way to collaborate with colleagues and share student creations with families. Over the course of one football game, she had built a kindergarten website from the ground up that is absolutely lovely. Check it out here!
I was fortunate to be present as she revealed her website to her class. The students were thrilled to themselves on the screen. They were excited to know that their family, both near and far, can access this website and see what is going on in their classroom. It was a proud moment for everyone involved.
If you have the desire to build a beautiful, free, simple to construct website, please consider turning to Weebly. They offer a premium product for free. Want to know more? Contact Andy or Catherine Bartholome and ask away!
So that happened today...
A huge thanks to Melissa Black for inviting me into her classroom so that I could see her students experience LearnPads for the first time. It was a sight to see! Amazing!
The class discussed the LearnPad rules, the safety procedures, and used them for a math lesson. Each child was engaged and excited as they explored their new learning tool.
Melissa is familiar with the LearnPad solution. She has been using them with her students for over a year. The interaction you see in the video is the future you. We are not there yet. With upcoming resources, tutorials, and trainings, we will get you there.
