Good Homepaging
The Quebec English Schools Network has developed a series of resources to "help schools create unique and dynamic Web sites. Our approach, though, has a particular bias. We believe that, by participating in the development of School Web pages, teachers can truly add a powerful teaching and motivational tool to their bag of pedagogical tricks. And they don't have to be "computer experts" to do so! We also believe that the true value of a school Web site or a teacher's web page comes from making it a pedagogical venture."
