that you can create a cute class website using Google? I know what you're thinking...there aren't a lot of templates or fonts to choose from and the parameters are very limiting. A few years ago, those concerns were true because I did, in fact, attempt to create a website on Google. It bombed terribly and I didn't look back...until now!!
This summer I took a 3 day technology based workshop through our Teacher's Center and I discovered a whole new world! The best part is--you can choose from a premade template (which is great for tech savvy people) or you can create your site from scratch only including the pages you really want (this way is better for novices).
I created mine using a classroom template...here's a pic of the front page
You can even embed a form from Google (I linked mine to the Poll Button on my homepage):
Or you can have a link:
There are a ton of fonts to choose and anything you do in Google can be linked to your site, like your calendar, docs, and other websites! People can even subscribe to certain posts--like my homework page! Families can subscribe and be notified of the new homework assignments when I upload them to the site!! How cool is that?!!? (Sorry...my inner nerd got out :p)
In no way shape or form am I affiliated with Google...I just love the new things I can do with it and I wanted to share!
If you want to take a closer look at my site, you can go HERE. It is still a work in progress and there is a lot I need to add, especially under Acknowledgements.
I would love to hear what you think! Are you ready to build a class site?
