A second vote for Weebly. I really like it. Easy to use, all drag and drop, and free hosting.

I have my blog with them, www.educationtechnologyblog.com , and my class site, www.mrwylie.com

Others she could try include, Snappages, yola, freewebs, webnode, jimdo... A second vote for Weebly. I really like it. Easy to use, all drag and drop, and free hosting.

If your students only need a simple website with a Menu for a few pages, then I would like to recommend autoweb-creator.com online webpage creation because it is simple, quick and free.
It can also be used as a starting point to make more elaborated websites with static and dynamic pages such as wholesale-clothing-supplier.com If your students only need a simple website with a Menu for a few pages, then I would like to recommend autoweb-creator.com online webpage creation because it is simple, quick and free.

Thanks for the website Shaun - it's a good one. I like the design your own ad campaign game and the fake banner ads - definitely shows kids how advertisers work. Another good resource I use is Media Madness, by Dominic Ali (http://www.kidscanpress.com/kidscanpress/KidsCanPress_3/KCP/f_home.htm) and Made You Look by Shari Graydon (… Thanks for the website Shaun - it's a good one.

@ Kathy and Andrew - I totally agree that getting kids to think critically is a key part of education. The website my student wants to build ties into a social studies unit on the rights of the child and looking the way media sells to kids. Thanks to the advice in this thread, I've not got a web platform that she can use to explore these issues. Should be fun. @ Kathy and Andrew - I totally agree that getting kids to think critically is a key part of education.

Kathy,

I really like your question, "Why is a web page better than any other medium?"

While there are times when web pages can be very useful, I personally think that too many people use web pages for projects that would be better hosted on other kinds of tools.

Then again, I'm not sure if it's important for school children to think about the difference in these tools as long as they can use them to promote critical thinking about important ideas. Kathy,

Thanks for these links everybody. This is exactly what I'm looking for. I think between them, my student will get her page online. Thanks again for the resources.

I've used Weebly and although the domain name will include Weebly in it, the program itself is pretty slick and easy to use.

How about a wiki? We use wikispaces.com, easy to use and free. Let them know it is for education, and they take the advertisements off.
