  • Create a new page
  • Add a YouTube video to your page.
  • Insert an image to your page.
  • Embed something from another session to your google site.
  • Locate your navigation and learn how to manage and publish.
  • Collaborate on your site, learn how to invite!
  • Practice adding pages and content.
  • Practice embedding documents, presentations, videos, and more.
  • Add the lead learner as a collaborator on your site. Links to each site will be shared below.
  • A representative from each group will share their site with the large group. (Time Permitting)
