Googly Tools for Educators

Session Outline & Objectives:

If you're an educator who knows how to use Google tools in the classroom, you will have noticed many improvements and features were added to G Suite for Education over the summer.

SESSION: 3C-4C

Google Sites - Documenting Student Learning

Session Outline & Objectives:

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 colour 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 document 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.


PREREQUISITES: Familiarity with Google apps such as: Google Docs, Sheets, Slides. Active G Suite for Education or G Mail account
