Google Sites

Google Sites is an awesome tool to create a web site. You can access google sites with a free Google account for personal use.
Watch this Google Sites tutorial for beginners by Jeffrey Bradbury.
Click HERE to view the Google Site I created during my participation in Shelly Terrell's, J.K Duncan's & F. Casella's amazing MOOC 'The Goal-Minded Teacher'. I used the site as a digital professional learning portfolio where I posted replies, curated interesting content and gathered reflections on each week of the course.
