Session Description: Every classroom teacher and instructor needs a “home base” website* to share links, videos, announcements, and other resources online. A home base website answers the common question, “Where can I find this later?” It can also facilitate sharing and collaboration among teachers. Learn how to use Google Sites (free) to create a dynamic, media-rich “home base” website accessible from mobile devices as well as laptop/desktop computers. View examples of websites like these (here and here) currently used by classroom teachers. Learn to create a “web bookmark” to your classroom home base site on an iPad for quick student access. Explore strategies for sharing “curiosity links,” videos, lesson plans, calendars, and other kinds of media.
