You can use a teacher page to communicate public information about what's happening in your class. Your page shouldn't include any sensitive or private information.
Teacher pages can include all of the same kinds of content as other pages in your school's website:
- Text (including headings, tables, ordered or bullet lists, just like the rest of the website)
- Images (in the body of the page or at the side)
- Attachments (PDF or other documents, in the body of the page or at the side)
- Links (in the body of the page or at the side, to pages in your website, to the CBE site, or to any other site)
- Videos (hosted on YouTube or another provider)
Teacher pages in your website are easy to update (from a PC, Mac, or even a mobile device) and integrated in your site navigation and search so they're easy to find.
When you edit your page, you choose which information to keep and which to overwrite or delete, but unlike a blog, all of the information stays on a single page. It's a great choice for showing what's happening in your class, but not well-suited to keeping a year's worth of daily updates. If having a public historical record is important for you, use a blog (from Blogger or D2L) instead.
Whether you choose to use a page or a blog, it's a short-term tool to communicate with the public, not a long-term place to keep a permanent record. Your page or blog should only include content from the current school year. Make sure that anything you will want to access after is safely stored elsewhere.
you use Twitter extensively to share our what's happening in your
classroom, we can embed your Twitter feed right in your Teacher Page.
That means your page will be updated every time you tweet and you don't
need to manage your information in two places. Check out our example Twitter page to see how it looks and how to request your page.
