Collaborate with Google Sites

Have you considered creating a website to connect with your students? You can post materials, publish a weekly or daily calendar and provide links to resources and activities tailor made for your class. Don’t be daunted.

Google Sites is a really simple tool with a drag and drop interface which means you can create a basic website in minutes from the comfort of your staffroom, classroom or home office. 

Need some inspo?

Check out some of Gorokan Public School's site! Gorokan Public School has put together a complete learning hub. Notice the pages for each year group and the simple and clever use of an embedded Google Slide.

Components to consider

When building your site remember to ensure you have planned out your webpage first:

1. How many pages do you need?

  • 1 for each class
  • 1 for each stage
  • is it a matter of a a simple 'one-pager' for your class?

2. What components do you require? Consider the following:

  • learning Resources
  • offline Activities
  • podcasts/audiobooks and more 
  • daily activities/timetable (See Gorokan’s example for ideas)
  • extra curricular tasks
  • gallery of student work samples
  • video introduction for parents and students

3. Consider publishing settings - who do you want to share the site with – is it just for your school, or a wider audience? 

  • You can choose specific people i.e. those with a NSW DoE login/Google account to view

  • Make it publicly visible

  • When selecting the website name, choose something unique and individual to your school
