Google Sites - From Idea to Publication (Google Sites ELITE 1)

One of the most powerful things you can do is to take your idea and show it to the world. Creating for anyone outside the classroom can be a great motivator but finding an appropriate tool used to be difficult until now. Google Sites might be the simplest tool we have ever encountered for students to publish their work.

One critical step before anyone builds a site is to create a plan. We used paper and Post-It Notes to start planning our ELITE website. Check it out, brilliant work!
