Mary Fran's Google Sites Tutorial

Mary Fran's Google Sites Tutorial | Ed Tech Highlights | Scoop.it

A tutorial on the features of a Google Site.
Sites is Google's free tool to create custom websites. Similar to a wiki, you can develop the site by yourself or choose to collaborate with others on the creation and content of the pages. Then, you can decide on the level of sharing you would like to permit. You can determine who the owners are, whom you would like to give permission to edit and revise the site, and whom you would like to give permission to view the site. You can limit viewing your site to a small, private group or you can choose to publish it so that it is accessible to anyone in the world.

Bring your own device (BYOD) and bring your own technology (BYOT) policies are growing in education and the workplace.

 

Here are 10 lesson ideas you can use in September to engage students and families. 

 

I especially like Google SMS: text a qustion to GOOGLE or 466453 for dictionary or dates in history. The QR-Code would be helpful for smartphones and smaller devices. 

 

Be sure to click the link to how to use Google Voice ( ( http://gettingsmart.com/blog/2011/09/how-to-use-google-voice-to-connect-with-parents-students/ ;  ) to contact parents and develop a support team for students.
