Google Sites + EDU
Google Suite for EDU (GSuite) is a popular cloud productivity, teaching and learning platform used in many NYCDOE schools, universities, and modern workplaces. Free, school-managed GSuite accounts include Google Sheets, a powerful tool for teachers and administrators. This course will focus on how Google Sites can support the powerful shifts of 21st Century learning, as well as student digital skills acquisition. By learning to use Sites to support instruction, teachers will be able to create online learning hubs, improve transparency for parents and guardians, and create student-centered activities.
Teachers who successfully complete the course will demonstrate the ability to use Google Sites to create a variety of online websites for academic purposes, including both school and course pages, as well as for student assessment and portfolios; they will extend that competency towards creating a content-specific, age-appropriate lesson plan that supports students in learning to use Google Sites.
