Gathering and Organizing Content for your Website


Students will implement a “best practices” process for file names, folder hierarchy, and archive of their project. Students will work in groups and use google image search with IP filters to gather content that they can incorporate into their website activity. Use of this file and folder naming process will allow students to easily collaborate on their class project with the other students in their group.


Teacher Note: Students will need access to gmail in order to use google docs.

Managing the content for a project is just as important as developing the content. By creating a process for managing content, projects can more easily be collaborative.

Student will learn about best practices for:

  • file naming
  • file storage
  • version control

Content can be in different states: draft, comp, final, approved formats

Students will collect and store project content in an organized manner so that all members of their team will be able to share and contribute to the project.

This lesson is part of an integrated project called "Creating Engaging Content".

Materials needed per student:

  • access to gmail (google docs)
