"If we teach today as we taught yesterday, we rob our children of tomorrow."- John Dewey (1859 - 1952)
Could I talk about blogging - weblogging - once more?
Maybe a class weblog is the answer to running your class web site. It's very easy to set up and from there, very easy to update and maintain. You can add images and links easily and parents could easily add feedback! You could also use Flickr or MSN to store your class digital photos and link from your web page to there. Use the web!
