  8. 8. 6. Begin adding content! You can use our sample site as a guide! go to: kingsleyportfolio.weebly.com Each page is a model for the type of information you should add to your site.

Extra Option: Design a Logo Successful logos are clear and unique. ● Your logo can be as simple as your handwritten signature. ● You can create a symbol by combining the initials in your name. ● Use your interests to inspire symbols that can be integrated into your logo! Scan your logo and save a jpg for use on your site.
  10. 10. 8. Safety and Privacy Part of being safe on the internet is choosing what information to share, and what to keep private. Never add these pieces of information to your portfolio: ● a photo of yourself ● your home address ● your home phone number ● your daily schedule ● any personal information you would not want a stranger to have
  11. 11. 9. Check in with a teacher Before publishing your site to make it public, consult with a teacher to: ● determine if the content is polished and edited completely ● decide if the information provided is clear and concise ● assure that all content reflects positively on you as a student ● check that all information follows our safety guidelines
  12. 12. 10. For Parents: Consider trying weebly yourself: http://www.weebly.com/ You can create a family site and add your children as contributors so each family member can have their own page. As a web presence becomes more important in education and the job market, it’s crucial that students know how to present themselves in a professional and polished way! This is great practice that empowers students to express themselves positively with technology!
