Working the Web with Kids

  • Avoid Frontpage if you can possibly!!!!!!!
  • Always name your first page index
  • Never have any spaces or funny symbols in your file names!
  • Create your navigation buttons first - copy them over to each page - this avoids having 100+ buttons created by Frontpage to upload....
  • Avoid copying pictures straight from other people's webpages...
  • Sure you don't have to upload your own images, what if their link changes & have you even got their permission.... same goes 4 music....
  • Run your raw video through an editor first so you can achieve a file size in single digit mB instead of gBs.......and anyway it won't upload with a space in the file name

Here is a lesson for us all - Discovery learning is not always the best place to start! :-)
Getting the basics right can save hours of frustration...

The kids had been working on an Antarctica WebQuest - they chose to present their work on the web themselves. Here's an example of their work (the video is still to be uploaded)
