ACTIVITY ONE: Pair up with some members from your group and start a discussion about things you'd like to see on a website?  Submit these things on this Google Form so we all can take a look!

Proof of Concept!
:  Start your own site for use in your role as an educator.   You can either start from scratch or use one of the School & Education Templates (I recommend from scratch).   Make sure you know your audience (students, parents, or colleagues).  Include links and leverage the other Google apps by embedding those features into your site. 

Be sure to explore Picnik to create a custom head for your class!

:  Be sure to explore the different layout types for pages as well as integrating the other Google apps (Docs, Spreadsheets, Presentations, etc).   Please include at least one of each into your site!

Share your site:  

:  Explore the possibilities of making sites public and private in the school setting.  This will require you to either use either two browsers or pair up with another person to explore these settings. 

:  Please incorporate at least 3 of the tips and tricks from below into your site OR create a custom banner.    Here's an easy tutorial to create the custom logo.
