Here's a little challenge. Have your students start typing in the URL, letter by letter, slash by tedious slash, to this website:

I think I would like to set up a page that the parents can access for information from our room. I really don't know how - is that something you come and help teachers with?
I love this question! I work with a lot of teachers who don't consider themselves very techy, and for them, the idea of having a full-fledged website can often cause more stress than the solutions it provides. As I was driving to visit this particular teacher, I was scrolling through my mental Rolodex, trying to think of the simplest, most manageable solution for her. As I was assessing what she already knows, it occurred to me that she's been very brave about using her Google Apps for Education . . . and then it hit me: Google Docs.
