Classroom Ideas and Examples
In a short amount of time, Kathy has started using Google sites in a really creative way with her students.
As a Resource Hub
Visually more appealing that a list of links that Schoology sort of offers. It is easy to embed any object from Google Drive. Bonus - you can write a quick paragraph to go with any of the resources to add context, or not.
This site continues to grow from having the in-class presentations per chapter to included a list of resources and links to go deeper on a particular topic.
This is a visual resource of specific daily assignments from art class.
As a Project Hub
One of the great features of this version of Google Sites is real time collaboration. That really enhances the ability to use Sites as a group project hub. It doesn’t have a rich revision history like the other Google products, so be aware of that.
This is an example of a principal competency portfolio that contains the various requirements laid out using pages and embedded content.
Sites is an easy to build toolkit to support students as they work through more open ended projects.
A great resource to blow up the presentation or poster board model of projects. It’s good to remember that a site is fully expandable, but it can be as simple as a single page with great content.
This is an example of how student work can be highlighted by scanning or taking a picture of “pencil and paper” and then posting it through Drive onto the site
