Open Access Graduate Research Paper
Web sites for children -- Design; Scholarly Web sites -- Design;
The Internet has improved the way that information can be presented to students in an educational setting. Teachers have taken advantage of improving education through the Internet by creating their own websites. However, some of these websites are not created in a way that allows them to be used effectively by students .. The author of this paper has created a website that will be used with his fifth grade students entitled The Fifth Grade Website (http://homepage.mac.com/brthiessen). The goal of the website is to enhance the educational experience of the students who use it. The website was designed in a way that would allow students to easily use it without any of the common errors that are found in many sites. Students can visit school related websites, practice math facts, and complete assignments simply by accessing the Fifth Grade Website. This website uses the power and resources of the Internet to create an educational website that can be used by students to enhance their learning experiences.
