Leave a comment

This post is dedicated to the semester long course (Spring 2012) of EDTECH 502, Internet for Educators. Dann Mosteller’s EDtech 502 Web Page

When I started out this semester, I had never made a web page and I was not familiar with the XHTML code language and the Cascading Styles Sheet formatting.  This part of the learning process was a challenge in the beginning, but as the semester progressed, I became more familiar with the code and I was able to problem solve my way through many layout and design situations.

Also, as I went deeper into the course the tasks became more challenging, which required much planning, research, and development of the content.  This became the most time consuming part of the course, but as a result, I have satisfied more AECT standards based on the design of the content and the instruction.

The following AECT standards were met in this course:
  • 1.1.a Utilize and implement design principles which specify optimal conditions for learning.
  • 1.1.1.a Write appropriate objectives for specific content and outcome levels.
  • 1.1.1.b Analyze instructional tasks, content, and context.

This assignment introduced me to Fireworks imaging software, where I was able to create hotlinks on an image and have it inserted into the web page.  There were many challenges to make the styles work, but the content of the web page was the most difficult.  Now, I have a web page that can be presented to students to help them learn more about poetry.

Netiquette Web Page

Leave a comment

One of my first content web page assignments was called the Netiquette Web page.  For this assignment, I made a page for my 8th grade students at King Faisal School in Riyadh.  Based on my observations, I purposely put content in this web page that would explain good behavior online and explaining student responsibility with the use of the internet.

This assignment was also important to help me know how to work with float properties and box properties with the xhtml and css code.

Netiquette Web Page

Before asking my students to access this web page, I asked them to fill out this survey.

Behavior and Safety on the Internet

Here are the results of 2 questions.

Later, I gave an online quiz of the content of these pages.  Here is a sample of the quiz.
