Google Sites have certainly come a long way and they have been turned on for students and staff at Newington as part of our Google apps package.
Sites were particularly showcased for the Year 7 Challenge Based Learning Project.
As part of the project the year 7’s were presented with options for how to do a final presentation. Google sites was given as one of those options for a more “organic” choose your own adventure approach where the audience can also have access to check the content out themselves. This has a challenge in it’s own right as the year 7’s only have iPads.
It can be done though! Please check the video for a quick overview on creating Google Sites (on an iPad), managing the look and feel, editing the header creating a new page, working with images and sharing. More to come on this soon!
