Online

Students are challenged to create web sites, web quests, and PowerPoints with embedded hyperlinks which are necessary to the function of the presentation, e-portfolio, blogs or interactive worksheets which would also have embedded hyperlinks. All entries must be interactive. That is, they must be online or have embedded links which will take the viewer online. These entries may be either educational/informational or personal/for entertainment.

Procedures

Web quests and webpages must be available online. Interactive worksheets, PowerPoints, e-portfolios, or blogs may be entered using the student’s Office 365 account. All hyperlinks should be functional. Webpages created entirely by original code will be entered in Computer Programming. Directions and a link for accessing your online entry must be included on the entry form.

HELPFUL HINTS:
We prefer that all entries are submitted using the student’s Office 365 account. Students can locate their files in OneDrive. From there, click on the file’s three dots and choose the “Share” option. Students should choose the option “Anyone with link” and UNCHECK the allow editing box. This link should then be copied and pasted into the student’s online entry form at http://www.wcpsmediaexpo.com/.
