Make Student Portfolios with SiteMaestro
Blogs and websites can be great methods for publishing student work. In this tutorial, I'll show you a very easy way to create websites for large groups of students using Google Sites and Spreadsheets. What you'll need is:
- A google site built in your own domain. If you plan to have a site that is used by more than one teacher, consider how you want the layout, pages in a way that supports the learning in your classroom. If you're new to sites, here are some tutorials to get you started. Building a site is 90% of the work and you can tinker with it for hours if you're not careful.
- A spreadsheet of each student's first and last name and email address. You may want to wait to build sites using this method until the second or third week of class, as class rosters may change due to scheduling conflicts.
