Weebly is a tool in which people are given the opportunity to create their very own website, relating to whatever they may choose. Although websites are fantastic options for many people and can be used for many different purposes including advertising a business or product, they are very dangerous tools. The fact that anyone can access it can be quite scary, especially if it is produced or contains anything about a minor. This thereofre means that the safety of the students who would use this tool can not be guaranteed. I personally would not use this in my classroom for this reason. I tend to feel that there are many other safer available tools that would be more beneficial for students to engage with. As with other tools that I have previously mentioned throughout my blog, this particluar tool closely aligns with Keirsley and Schneiderman's Engagement Theory as students are in total control of the information they view and produce.
