|For This Common Task I had to use my skills that I learned in Web Graphics & Design to create a web site. The web site was required to have things, like a navigational bar, flash animation, footer, and logo. The first thing that I did was plan out my web site. I made a plan using Word. Then i started using Macromedia Dreamweaver to create the site. I also used Macromedia Flash to create my flash animations. I found information and pictures using the Internet to use on my site. I then found a background image and edited the colors of texts and backgrounds to give my site a good look. After that, I had to make a navigation bar and link of the pages together. I also created a footer.When I was done creating the site itself, I created a flash animation to use on my site with Macromedia Flash. I think the hardest part of this task would be making all of links on each page, and making sure they worked correctly. I think the easiest part of the task would be finding the information about my topic to use on my site. I met standard 1.1, communicate effectively using written and technological
formats by making a plan for my web site telling what information would be on each page. I met standard 1.4, demonstrate the use of reasoning and problem solving skills and strategies through the analysis and synthesis of date and information because every time that there was a problem with my web site, like a link not working or a image not showing properly, I had to figure out what was causing the problem, and fix it. I met standard 2.1, demonstrate the behaviors and skills for independence and collaboration by creating this web site in a certain amount of time given and all by myself with no help from anyone. I met standard 2.2, Participate as a citizen in the local, national, and global community by posting my web site on the world wide web for everyone to see. From completing this task, I learned a lot about Web Design and what it takes to create a web site and how much effort it takes.
