We scheduled a block of time in the computer lab- this was far more involved than iPads. We used Weebly.com to create their websites. They were required to have a Home Page, a Letter of Introduction for their new teacher, and About Me section, their actual Portfolio, a Resume, and a list of References.
I also showed them how to embed book lists from their Goodreads.com account to show what they've been reading or what their favorite books are.
I hope to include this practice throughout the school year this upcoming year. I'd like kids to be thinking about their work beyond the due date and thinking of what they're getting out of the assignment besides a grade.
Weebly was easy to use and the kids picked it up easily. I absolutely recommend it. It also has a blog function, so I'd like to see the kids use that too... We'll see :)
