A few of the teachers at my school are planning on rebuilding their "class website" throughout the upcoming summer in preparation for our student laptop learning program. I created this little sketch to outline how instructional websites have changed over the past 10 years. To me the biggest difference is who can contribute. In 2000 the class website was pretty much driven and managed by the teacher. In 2010 both the teacher AND students have the capacity to serve as curators of the site.
I'm hopeful that this proves to be a simple little graphic to help folks along as they plan out the different components and parts they'd like to build into their online learning spaces.
