Free Web Space

Getting free Web space for my scholars has been a real adventure. We have used Geocities for years and suddenly they closed down this service. Then I found FreeWebPages and they have become very flaky as of late. Now I'm using FreeWebSpace, which advertises itself as a replacement for Geocities. So far so good.

Why is it so hard to work with webpages now in schools and technology with so many hurdles in a world so dependent on technology? Once again schools lag behind with the most important tool in world when it comes to employing it in education.

I started out as a hacker and still I need to use my hacker instincts to make the tech work in an environment where it should be easy, and it is not. And we wonder why our students are so far behind. We love to hamstring schools.
