There are many classroom uses for Google Sites. Listed below are SOME of the ways Sites can be utilized in the classroom setting.
A classroom website is a great way to keep students and parents informed about what is going on in your classroom. You can have a page where you can post announcements, upload documents, insert a Google Calendar, and anything else you would want your students and parents to know. Use it for spelling lists, test review, field trip reminders and more.
Student Digital Portfolio
Students can use a Google Site to upload any digital content created at school. Students can have a page for every year they are in school, along with a subpage for each subject every year. The site will not need to be recreated every year, just a new page added to it. Students can upload documents, videos, links, and more.
Teachers can create an online curriculum using a Google Site. A new page can be created for each chapter, unit, etc. All readings, worksheets, websites, videos, and more can be inserted for the students to follow along and utilize as you move through your content.
Lesson Plan/Content Storage
Teachers can use Sites to create lesson plans and store and sort all of the digital content they plan to use in class. This may or may not be a website to share with students. Either way, the lesson plans are there and cannot be "lost" so you have them for next year. All of your content and resources are organized and easy to find. No more forgetting where that video was or which website you used the year before!
