Student Start Pages

          One of the simplest ways to guide students is by providing them with a "start page" that will link to preselected web sites. These start pages may be annotated with specific directions or objectives for use. These pages could be constructed through special software designed for web page construction, through html codes or they can be made directly from bookmark files in Netscape. Bookmark files are easy for teachers to collect, sort, annotate and store and do not require learning a new software package or codes. They may be saved on disk or on the school server and then used as a local web page for students. Students access these start pages under adult supervision with the understanding of the school's acceptable use policy in which they have agreed to appropriate standards for Internet use.
