Google Sites make it simple to create a website. Yes, Google Sites may be a little limited but that also means it makes it easy to use. One plus is how easily Google Sites integrates with Google Drive. Google My Maps, one of the newer members of the Google Apps and Google Apps for Education (GAFE) family, is no exception.
Below is a short video tutorial showing how to embed a Google My Map from Google Drive into a Google Site.
Applications for education
Google Sites allow you to draw from different types of media and documents as well as interactive elements. Schools are using it for:
- flipping classrooms by putting content online
- student portfolios
- student projects
- communication with the wider school community
Google My Maps is another way of developing the richness of Google Sites.
