He also shared with us how to use moderation mode in Padlet - a great way to avoid any curly comments from students being made public to the whole class!
Next up Gerhard guided us through a session on the NEW GOOGLE Sites. It is much quicker to create a site in this new version, using a range of preset options. However you are limited in how you can customise your site so despite all the time saving shortcuts NEW sites offers, I think I would prefer have more control over how my site/pages will look and 'work' . The original GOOGLE sites has my vote! I got to try out the NEW sites by creating a landing page for all the different sites and blogs that we have been working on for the past few weeks. It also includes links to the individual class/team sites for each of the other DFI participants. Click here or the image below to view the site page in full.
Next week, our DFI group will take the GOOGLE EDUCATOR LEVEL 1 exam - let's see how much we really know!
