Come with me on a journey where we will explore, investigate, manipulate and interact with some familiar and some not so familiar Teacher Delivery Technologies.

On the way ask yourself:-
- how can this tool be used to support what and how students learn?
- does this tool meet individual learning needs?
- does this tool allow student's to develop higher order skills and creativity?

This Blog - Transforming Student Learning aims to comprehensively explore a range of delivery technologies that are presented throughout the FAHE11001 E-Learning courseware. A systematic attempt to develop skills, knowledge and ability that is required to exploit the potential for E-Learning Education will be made evident via regular Blog Posts. To conclude, a reflective synopsis will clearnly indicate which technologies I would use and how I would use them to enhance learning.

Please feel free to be critical of my posts as I work may way through these tools, but be kind as I am only a "Digital Immigrant"! (Prensky, 2001)

Static Website - Web 2.0 Technologies

Posted by Wendy Hargreaves at Wednesday, August 12, 2009
Most websites are static websites. They are created and delivered by a web designer and maintained by a webmaster. They can contain all sorts of content such as Flash, JavaScript, PHP, CGI etc. but can only be updated by someone with a working knowledge of HTML and the ability to use software such as Dreamweaver. Eyelid productions (2009) explain that Static Websites are relatively inexpensive to produce compared to websites which run from a data base but can be costly to maintain. However, if a website only requires an occasional update (once or twice a year) a static website is a cost effective solution.

(http://www.discoveringegypt.com/) is an Education Website discovering ancient Egypt. It was written for children and schools as a teaching aid. Subjects - Pyramids, Temples, Kings/Queens and Hieroglyphics (download Gifs and write your name in the ancient script) Plus free screen savers. This site has received the Discovery Channel - Schools Awards, Encyclopaedia Britannica Award. The BBC Education Webguide, says: "This web site is presented in a simple-to-use format." "The site is well illustrated and contains many photographs as well as information." "The graphics are excellent and the site is very accessible." Designed and maintained by Mark Millmore
