Reflection for Website Creation
This website was a learning experience. It has helped to understand the complications and simplicities of designing a modern website. I went through the frustrating training process of making a simple page that said “Hello World,” to creating an expression of my interests. I was allowed to create a web site that explains, in my own words, my favorite game and some of its close relatives.
I learned skills during the semester that helped in learning the code that is behind all web sites. From there, I was taught how to use Dreamweaver, which makes designing websites much simpler than three-line long statements to make the title for the website. Placing images in, referencing links for, making tables for the content of the website were all skills needed to create the sites that lead up to the final project.
The most difficult part of making the website was trying to make the flash. Beyond the fact that I have very little experience with flash, drawing, or constant movement, I had to make three flashes for the requirement of two. The first flash I made was simple, then the second got deleted when the program died on me. The third was just an edited version of the first and ended up being my final product. The easiest part was pasting the images with their references. The images were annoying to find, but they had a adverse effect on my project, and really made each page unique in appearance.
This project satisfies several requirements in the common task rubric. The first is 1.1; which is communicating effectively using oral, written, and technological formats. It does this by using a written format on the web page that we created. The second is 1.2 in which students are proficient in the use of technology. I created web sites. I satisfied 1.4; which is demonstrating the use of reasoning and problem solving skills and strategies through analysis and synthesis of data and information. I solved problems that got in the way of finishing my web site. I satisfied 2.1 demonstrate the behaviors and skills for independence and collaboration. This was done through solving problems independently, with the occasional help of the teacher. Finally, I satisfied 2.2 in which students practice responsible use of technology systems, information, and software. I learned how to responsibly create a web site that can be viewed by anyone who chooses to take an interest in the game. I was very proud of my web site, and I learned a lot.
