Buckman Arts Magnet Elementary School

Name:Buckman Arts Magnet Elementary School

Buckman Arts Magnet Elementary School is located in Portland, Oregon. The school’s Web site takes advantage of several relatively new online tools: blogs, digital photo sharing, and a wiki are used to share information and seek input from members of the school community.

How to use the site:
Parents can stay on top of current general school news and announcements by visiting the Home page. There is also an archive of these postings that goes back to August 2004. Classroom Notes are messages posted to parents by teachers on an ongoing basis, and a few teachers are developing more extensive pages as well. In addition to recent photos found on the site, Buckman’s Photos are also available on Flickr, an online photo management and sharing site. Finally, parents and teachers have access to a password-protected wiki, a Web-based application for online collaboration.
