Static web pages would be a good way for teachers to present information to students about a particular topic. Static web pages display the same information for all users, providing the classical hypertext, where navigation is performed through "static" documents (Wikipedia, 2009). This means that teachers are able to create a web page that leads students through the relevant information for a particular topic. The advantages of static websites in the classroom is that they are quick and easy to put together and one copy can be shown to many students. Static websites would also be a fantastic website to use for project-oriented learning as the teacher is able to provide students with a list of topics which will help them get an idea of a possible project topics. Teachers can then include links to the actual project materials that will assist them with the their chosen topic (Kearsley & Shneiderman, 1999).
Overall they are another good tool in the classroom however teachers do have to have the technical knowledge to set up.
