Creating a Web Site
For this assignment I was asked to complete a web site of choice. I chose to do my band, The Way Things Work. I found choosing my topic was the easiest part of this entire assignment. I have always wanted to produce a web site for my band and this was the perfect opportunity. The hardest part was probably designing the project. I wasn't sure of how I wanted to present my band, and the images i wanted to use. I probably changed my font, link and background colors ten times for each page. The process wasn't terrible to learn this. Each class I would learn and practice different aspects and tools on Dream Weaver as well as how to produce a proper flash. The standards I met while doing this task consisted of standard 1.1 Communicate effectively using oral, written and technological formats. I met this because by creating a web site I have learned a new tool in technology- how to create a web site. I also met standard 1.4 which states that i demonstrated the use of reasoning and problem solving skills and strategies through
analysis and synthesis of data and information. I met this by reasoning through the little errors made in order to complete an efficient web site. I also met standard 2.1 Demonstrate the behaviors and skills for independence and collaboration. I met this by doing the web site completely on my own. By completing this task I have become more independent when creating flash and web sites, as well as gained a new tool that can possibly be used in the future.
