305 – eBook Ch 11: School Websites

School and classroom web sites are the topic of today’s WELSTech.

For the classroom, we discuss the use of student blogs and social classroom management sites as well.

God’s Word – The WELSTech 2013 Summer series – Church & School Website Content – continues as Martin and Sallie explore many great ways to incorporate God’s Word into your web site. If “Content is King” on websites, then God’s Word is truly the “King of Content” which can be featured there.
