Documenting Student Learning with New Google Sites

Phil Taylor

New Google Sites now delivers the simplest way to display Google Drive files, YouTube videos, calendars, images, and maps on the web. Every page is now an easy-to-read clean design, that is automatically formatted for display on a desktop, tablet, or phone. The elements of every site work together, thanks to themes, fonts, and color choices that help you create a coherent design. Students can now focus on creating the content of their site to document their learning.

Students and teachers can also work collaboratively in real time to create project sites, learning portfolios, etc., to create and showcase their learning.

This session will focus on the creation of a site, along with a conversation about the many possibilities this modernised version of Google Sites adds to your digital tool kit.
