Google Sites and Blogs

Google Sites and Blogs are increasing becoming similar depending on how they are set up. Sites can be formatted to look like a blog and blogs can also be formatted like a site. This blog is a good example of how a blog can look like a website.

Students can use both to share learning materials and updates about class activities to the community. But for the followings tasks I would prefer the use of Sites:

  • Digital Portfolios showcasing personal learning
  • Group projects where students create their own pages and share it with others
  • Class announcements 

Blogs would be better on the following tasks:

  • Encourage peer critique by allowing students to post comments and feedback on each others blog.
  • To cover a wide variety of articles.
  • Keep parents updated about their kids learning
