For this task, we had to make our own website on a subject we chose, I chose surfing. From this assignment, I learned how to create my own website using Dreamweaver MX 2004. In addition, I learned how to create my own flash animation from Macromedia Flash MX. To learn how to make my own website and make flash animations we had to make many practice websites and flash animations before hand. The repetition of creating web sites and animations helped me learn. The most challenging aspect of this task I thought was making the flash animation. I thought it was the hardest because the macromedia flash program was not very simple and it takes a while to get used to. The least challenging part of this task I thought was adding the content to the website because you were allowed to get content from other websites as long as you cited it. The completion of this task helped me meet the academic learning expectation of communicating effectively using oral, written, and technological formats (1.1). I met this standard because I had to use the computer programs to make my own website and flash animations so I could communicate effectively using technological formats. I also met the academic learning expectation of meeting proficiency in the content and applied learning standards outlined in the Rhode Island High School Diploma System (1.2). On my web site I had all the elements a good web site needs. The last academic learning expectation I met was demonstrating the use of reasoning and problem solving skills and strategies through the analysis and synthesis of data and information. I met this expectation because I had to use problem solving skills when I encountered problems when making my website. I met the social and civic learning expectation of demonstrating the behaviors and skills for independence and collaboration (2.1) because I can make a web site independently now. I also participated as a citizen in the local, national, and global community (2.2) because the web site I have created will go online and anyone can view it. As a student this task has helped me develop because if I ever needed to make a web site for a project I know how to. As an individual, this task has helped me develop because I know how to make my own web site if I ever wanted or needed to.
