Supporting virtual teaching and learning using Google Sites

Zaitoon Bukhari

So, we have planned to return to school in September – face to face but also factor in the virtual aspect of teaching. We will have students and staff who will not be able to attend. We are moving away from exercise books and text books and using Google Classroom as our main tool for work output and return.

One tool we have made significant use of during the lockdown is Sites. I have created CPL website which hosts all teacher training – with many aspects using Autocrat to generate certificates for staff to say they have completed the training. They are then using this as evidence to upload into their performance management.
Along side this, I have created a virtual learning platform, which allows staff to upload their instructions and screencastifys and tasks onto one platform for students to be able to work asynchronously.

I would like to showcase the potential of Sites as my tool which is aiding to support our school.
