Mastering Google Sites

Last year I presented my site about Google Site Tips. It showcased projects done with students and those created for staff development. The session was a great success so I decided to expand on the site with more current resources. I do units with Google Sites in grades 6-8. The most extensive unit involves 8th graders. They create dynamic and interesting sites pertaining to an imaginary country, museum or business. The 6th and 7th graders are invited to a Google site as editors so they can add their own page about a creative creature they create using Switch Zoo. They embed Vokis on their site that they create with their own voices. They use Audacity, a free sound editing program so that they can clean up unnecessary or unwanted sounds in their recording before uploading it to their Voki. Once students are given enough time to complete their page, students provide constructive feedback to some of their peers within the comments’ section of the Google site. The students are supposed to use that feedback to “perfect” their site. I have added more self-help videos to the site so that those who want to become more proficient with design can watch and do the videos at their own pace.
