Session Description

Google Sites For Your Classroom

Google Sites is a webpage, wiki, portfolio, blog, and more rolled into one easy to use package.  It has many uses from student created sites to the outward facing website of the school or business.   This session will cover the basics of setting up a Google Sites to be used as your classroom website.  Use it for posting homework, class calendar and even as a simple discussion board.  I will also cover some ways that you can use student created Sites for group work or individual portfolios.
