Connections
My fellowship responsibilities were to update content on the company's website and tocreate training materials. Since the use of websites is standard in industry and businesssectors, schools should implement the same practice and help teachers to createindividual classroom websites. I will use the skills I developed during my fellowship tocreate and implement a training workshop on website design. The training will focus onhow to create, edit, and manage a website using WordPress.
