New Google Sites - great for student portfolios!

A brand new version of Google Sites will roll out soon. Here's a preview showing just how easy this completely rewritten tool is to use. Unlike the dated original version of Sites it integrates fully with Google Drive and Google Classroom. Sites appear in Drive and can be shared and submitted through Classroom.

Here's a video I've prepared for one of my sessions at tomorrow's +EdTechTeam Google for Education Summit in Melbourne to show how to use New Google Sites to showcase student work stored in Google Drive.

Building sustainable, program-wide systems of professional learning for higher education instructors to strengthen their capacity to use technological tools to support learning and teaching.

Ensuring pre-service teachers' experiences with educational technology are program-deep and program-wide rather than one-off courses separate from their methods courses.

Aligning the above efforts with research-supported standards, frameworks, and credentials recognized across the field.
