Free ebook TinyURL.com/sunportfolios5Tony Wagner (Harvard University, author of books about innovations in education) put it simply: The world doesn't care about what students know. It wants to see what students have done with what they have learned.Students at High Tech High put their work on display. Your school could do better: Add links to video presentations by your students explaining their work. I want to hear the students at High Tech High describing the process that they went through. Their portfolios are flat, two-dimensional, and static. Even the best digital portfolios simply sit there on the screen, waiting to be read. Why not add a video link so that future employers and college admission officers can hear the voices of your students? Why not "one-up" the High Tech High standard for Digital Portfolios?We look forward to searching your school's website and finding a link to Digital Portfolios ("a list of websites made by our students")We want to see what your teachers and students do with this idea.

Fast forward to today, and an average Joe can have one running in minutes. There are now a lot of companies providing website services, driving costs down on the part of consumers. Making it even better, some of these companies are generous enough to let you have a website without paying anything. However, it's not everyone who knows how to get a free website. Besides, having a lot of companies that provide the same thing can leave you confused and not knowing which one to choose. Actually, if you are not careful, you can end up paying a high price for something that was advertised as free. This book will act as your guide to getting a free website. But, as you may know, free usually comes at a cost. So, we will look at the pros and cons of going down this road. I will then show you how easy it can be to set up a free website. But, since a website will do nothing on its own, I will also give you tips on how you can increase traffic with great content, SEO, and other methods. I'm sure you will find this book useful, so without wasting any more time, let's get started, because a free website awaits you.
