For this project we had to create a website using Macromedia Dreamweaver and Macromedia Flash. I first learned how to use Dreamweaver and Flash. Then once I was good enough at these programs we picked a topic and then started to create a website. I was given eight class periods to work finish everything.

During the process of creating my website I found some challenging things and some not so challenging thins. The thing I found most challenging was the flash. I thought that the flash was hard because it is very time consuming and I was not good with creating flashes to begin with. Although the least challenging part of this common task was creating the website. I thought this was easy because we used Macromedia Dreamweaver MX 2004 and it is very simplistic. This was also the least time consuming part of my project.

While completing this common task I successfully met five standards of learning. I met standard 1.1, 1.2, 1.4, 2.1, and 2.2. I met standard 1.1, Communicate effectively using oral, written, and technological formats. I met this standard by completing a website using different types of computer programs such as Macromedia Dreamweaver MX 2004 and Macromedia Flash MX 2004. I also met standard 1.2, Meet proficiency in content and applied learning standards as outlined in the Rhode Island High School Diploma System. I met this standard by successfully putting in all elements that were required such as linking all pictures and pages together and creating a flash. The third standard I met was standard 1.4, Demonstrate the use of reasoning and problem solving skills and strategies through analysis and synthesis of data and information. I met this standard by working through all the problems that I had a long the way such as problems with pictures being linked and my flash not working out the right way. I also met standard 2.1, Demonstrate the behaviors and skills for independence and collaboration. I was able to meet this standard by independently working and problem solving with my classmates throughout the process of creating my website. Finally I met standard 2.2, Participate as a citizen in the local, national, and global community. I met this standard by creating a website that can be viewed on our school website by anybody. I learned that I can create a website on my own and complete tasks without the teachers help. This project can help me in the future because I could have to make a website for something like a company that I could potentially work at in the future.
