The Wonderful World of Web Widgets

Web widgets can breathe new life to a classroom site. A widget is a little bit of code you embed into a webpage or blog. Once a widget’s code is pasted into a page, it can grab updated information or display interactive content. Learn about places to find, customize, and use free embed code that displays information right on your own website. Your website will thank you for the fresh, new content!

Web widgets go by different names, including HTML embeds, embed code, plug-ins, and gadgets. Chances are your website has a way for you to paste the HTML code into your page so that it displays a widget. Each platform has a different method for inserting the code. If your platform is not listed below, try a Google or YouTube search for a tutorial.
