SPAM Bots took over the comments! But I am unhiding these temporarily.
I've decided to use Weebly to host this website. It's a free website creation tool with some great templates and an easy interface. I bought the "constructivisttoolkit.com" domain from GoDaddy, and Weebly made it very easy for me to point the domain to this site. You don't have to purchase the domain name, I just chose to. If I didn't the site might have had ".weebly.com" in the URL name.
Creating a site on Weebly might be a great alternative to a traditional report or paper, or even to a PowerPoint presentation. Kids would be able to organize their thoughts, use images and video, and even host discussions using the the many pre-designed elements that are available in Weebly.
I think that kids from 3rd grade up would have no trouble with this highly multimodal interface. The thumbnail images for the elements and design layouts do not require programming knowledge to understand the functions they perform.
As I add more to this site, I plan on testing out every feature available. Stay tuned!
