There are more than 108 million websites on the world wide web, and many of them are created for the purpose of informing people. For this task, I had to use my skills that I learned in web design class to create a full-functioning website about a topic of my choice. I chose to make my website about the town of Narragansett. In my website, I included a brief history about the town, restaurants to visit, places to see, and the school system. To learn the content of this task, I had to make sure that I fully understood the skills that I learned in web design class. I also had to do research to get the information I wanted. I also had to create a flash that was related to the topic of the website, and put it on the home page of the website.
The most challenging aspect of this task was being able to complete it on time. Creating the website took a lot of effort and time. I had to use all the time that I could to hand this task in. The least challenging aspect of this project was choosing a topic. I had to chose something that was interesting to me and something that would be easy to create five or six web pages about.
By completing this task, I met standard 1.1 which is to communicate effectively using technological formats. I met this standard through using technology, or computers, to complete the task. Every part of this task was done on a computer. I also met standard 2.1 (demonstrate the behaviors and skills for independence) by completing the task on my own, with out a partner or group. I also met standard 1.4 (demonstrate the use of reasoning and problem solving skills and strategies through analysis and synthesis of data and information) by analyzing my research and using the skills that I learned to create a complete website. Standard 5.1 was also met through this task because I used technology to research my topic for my website. Standard 5.1 is using technology to locate, evaluate, and collect information from a variety of sources. And lastly, by creating a website that others can access on the internet, I met standard 2.2 (participate as a citizen in the local, national, and global community.)
