Learning Advanced Features
Scroll through and select one of the advanced features to try out on your Weebly!!
Have students submit their work, respond to a quick formative assessment question to gage where they are in relation to the day's lesson, collect votes or nominations, have students select an option from a list of choices... the options are endless and you're going to LOVE this feature! The Assignment Form is a lot like a Google Form, but is limited in comparison. It would be great for a quick collection of info or turning in an assignment that doesn't exceed 20MB (papers, keynotes, etc).
Add an Assignment Form to your Weebly! If you already have an assignment form on your page, talk to the group about how you use it to facilitate student information/assignments. What pointers can you share? What else do you see yourself using this widget for?
Have you started using Twitter with your classroom? Have a hashtag that is specific to your class? Add a twitter feed that filters tweets using your hashtag and post it to your class page!! It updates in real time and may seem much less daunting than Twitter itself, allowing students to benefit from the discussion and what's happening on Twitter, without being on Twitter!
Add a Twitter Feed to your Weebly! If you already have a Twitter Feed on your Weebly page, share with your group what #hashtag you searched and why you chose that specific one to add to your page. How else could you utilize this advanced feature? Discuss.
Want to add another page to your site, but not interested in having it appear in your main tool bar? You have two options: 1) You can slide it under another page and it will appear as a pop-down option to one of your main pages. Or 2) You can select the "Hide in navigation" option when you create the page and then link it to an image or text so that when someone visits your site, they click on the picture/text/button and are taken to that page. Their only access to that page is through the linked item.
Try this out and select "PAGES" at the top of your Weebly creation page. You can always chose to un-hide a page!
