Olin Laster’s Final Project Idea

June 30, 2010

For my final project I’d like to make a site for my girlfriend’s 3rd grade class that she teaches. She works at a school that only recently has gotten its own webpage and she has wanted a proper page for her own class for a while now.  This site would be for both students and parents.  It could include descriptions of what the students are working on and links to resources relating to those subjects. I’m imagining some sort of calendar that parents can use to see upcoming assignment dates, announcements, school events, teacher in-service days, etc. There could be a page or two exclusively for parents with links to various resources and educational materials. Of course there would be a page highlighting the students’ work and a page with pictures from various class activities.  If the kids are interested there could even be a page where they get to post their own thoughts or messages.  I know this isn’t necessarily a LIS related topic but it would be welcomed and useful.

    Olin,

    Core competency K is all about instructional practice. Building an information collection to serve an instructional environment is exactly what you describe, so I think it’s a good thing. You can visit some of the literature on what makes a classroom tick and how your site will serve those goals probably just by talking to your GF. Also, Google calendar is probably a good fit here.
