This is my target audience report for our website, This is a vital factor that must be thought out when producing a website, By finding out who our website would be most useful to, we could then mould our style and text around what would suit the age and attitudes of the possible readers. by aiming for 15-20 year olds this means our language will need to be sophisticated, but easily accessible and understandable. We also had to be aware adults e.g. teachers may read our website, and so it must be appropriate and necessary. because of the demographic of our target audience, it means it would be helpful to use a multi-media approach, including a video we created and images associated with our text. this allows all readers to see the text and engage their imagination making a connection with our website and its purpose.

8 page website

This is the layout of all 8 of our website pages, they are in order of how they appear on the search bar on our actual website.
Within our website we have used the same colours on most pages including images on most pages with an additional video.
We used a phone to record the video and take the images and then linked it to the computer to place it onto our website.since then we have decided to change the layout of our website slightly in which was advised from our feedback.

This is the video for our bullying website
This is the video we created to post on our AS website, we used a video as it provides a sense of interaction with the reader, i feel this is especially useful in the case of bullying as it is an outlet for viewers who are or have been bullied. We decided to base this short video on showing a form of bullying and also sends out the message that is happens to many different people in many different forms. This also enhanced our filming and editing skills and we feel it was an effective form of media to implement on our website.

This is the Tunstall High preliminary website in which we created, by designing and actually making this website allowed us to progress in using programs such as Iweb in which would then help us make our main website. From this we also got a better idea of what layout, font, and other forms of multi-media help to make a website more appealing and overall satisfy its target audience. We chose the colour blue for the main part of our website as we feel this would be most eye catching and as it was a school website we designed, it would not be too off putting.

Preliminary website draft sketch

This is our draft sketch for our preliminary website, here we planned what colours and layout we will include in our "Tunstall high school" web page, and by planning this it made it much easier when creating this via Iweb. However it was only an outline as we did change this version slightly, to make it look more professional and for it to be more accessible.

These are our results for the survey we conducted in relation to our website, we created this survey to find out first hand some information and facts regarding certain social groups and characteristics in a range of ages. We also asked our class in school whether they had bullied someone or had been bullied through-out their school experience. By finding out this information it allowed us to find how frequent bullying cases can be and we also aimed to get a better insight into the causes and effects of bullying, this information also helped us when producing our actual website itself.

This is our survey for our website

This is the survey we produced in order to find out about peoples perception of bullying, we gave these out to 20 students and then used the answers we received to make judgements on certain factors to do with bullying, eg how relevant do teenagers feel it is, to be educated about bullying, its causes and effects. By finding this out also showed what information we should include in our website and how we can make it most beneficial to our target audience.
