3 Benefits of a Class Website
December 9, 2019

There are countless benefits to creating and maintaining a class website. Here, we’ve rounded up our top three. 

3 Benefits of Classroom Websites:  

    1. Keep families in the loop. Family members are our greatest partners. Access to information via a class website helps parents to better engage with their child about what’s happening at school. 
    2. Share additional resources with students and parents. A dedicated digital space allows us to share relevant content quickly and easily, such as videos, documents, and helpful links. A curated collection of resources can go a long way in empowering those who are looking to learn more.
    3. Reflect on the strength of classroom systems. Writing about how a classroom functions helps us to assess what is working well and what we might want to approach differently in the future.  

So, have you taken the plunge and already created a class website? If you’re a “yes,” what benefits are you seeing? If you’re a “not yet,” consider using our classroom website template to get started today (see instructions below)!
