Classroom Website Using Google
During this hands-on workshop teachers will set up a website for their classroom using Google Sites as the method of creation. We will focus will be on how to create and edit pages, attach and link documents and images, as well as maintain announcements and utilize other features. The result will be a fully functional and published website your students can access for classroom resources such as notes, homework, and video tutorials, etc.. If your district does not provide an alternate web-based method for communicating to students and parents, then this is a great place to start.
