Reflection

If you were able to get to this page, through the links of my website, then I should reach proficiency! This is because my task was to create a functional website, with differrent web pages, and a flash animation (if you would like to see my flash animation, click the 'Flash Page' link). Three skills I used to complete this task was using Macromedia Flash Player, managing sites in Macromedia Dreamweaver, and creating several web pages (Website) in Macromedia Dreamweaver. I learned all of this content through creating several web pages in class.

The most challenging aspect for me was making the links to all of the different web pages in the top and bottom naviggational bars. This took a long time, and after re-doing a couple of web pages, the links got messed up, and I had to fix them. The least challenging aspect of this task was making my flash animation, because I picked up on Macromedia Flash quickly, and making flashes is very easy for me.

The completion of this task has helped me to Narragansett High School Academic Learning Expectations 1.1, 1.2 and 1.4 and Social and Civic Learning Expectations 2.1 and 2.2. I met expectation 1.1 by communicating my ideas on the website clearly in a written and technological format. I met expectation 1.2 by meeting proficiency with computer education standards for the state of Rhode Island. I met expectation 1.4 by using my problem solving skills to solve problems I faced with the technology used as I completed the task. I have met Social and Civic Learning Expectation 2.1, requiring that students demonstrate the behaviors and skills for independence and collaboration, by working independently in the process of website creation and collaborating with my instructor when I had questions. I have met expectation 2.2, participating as a citizen in the global community, but contributing my knowledge and research to the global body of information online. The completion of this project has helped me to develop as a student by providing me an opportunity with which to develop my technological abilities and skills. Learning how to create a website may be useful in and of itself in the future, or the technological skills I gained may help me in further educational situations. Whether or not I use the knowledge, I have gained as a result of the completion of this task to create websites in the future, the technological skills I have developed will help me for many years to come.
