Despite the fact that I am touting Zoho.com as having an even better set of Office tools than Google, there are still many reasons to use the Google Apps. One of these tools is Google Page Creator and I am recommending it as a quick, easy and free method of whipping up a decent Web site and getting it online in seconds. Here is a quick site that I created for a class called "Intro to Google". I can then put links to Google tutorials or any other site that I wish to include. There are currently 41 different themes (or as Google calls them, "Looks") and 4 different layouts with varying numbers of columns.
The newest features include image editing and the ability to create multiple sites. When you first sign in to Google Page Creator, Google automatically gives you a site with the same name as your Gmail address. Now you can create up to five sites with different URLs. For example, you can have joespizza.googlepages.com in addition to joe.googlepages.com.
Here is an example of a 2nd site that I created for my side business: (http://themark720.googlepages.com/techtutorandrepair). This site is definitely a work in progress. I've spent all of 5 minutes on it so far. My main Home site in Google Page Creator is http://themark720.googlepages.com/home
If you don't mind having "googlepages.com" as part of your domain, this is one of the best and quickest ways to get a site on the Web in minutes, and might I mention, WITHOUT ADS. No ads at all so far, and of course Google Page Creator is a free way to create Web sites.

Keyboard Shortcuts: It All Depends on Context (A Deeper Dive) It's true. I can write a full in-depth article on just about anything technology-related. Even something as seemingly straightforward as keyboard shortcuts. Who knew how complex this topic could be. You might have wondered why a shortcut like Ctrl+D does one thing in one app or extension, while the same shortcut does something completely different in another. Hopefully, I can shed some light on a bit of the keyboard shortcuts confusion. Here are some things to consider: 1. The keyboard shortcut Ctrl+D in Google Slides or PowerPoint, for example. If you're in Google Slides and you select a graphic object, you can press Ctrl+D and it will duplicate the object. This should work the same way for everyone. However, if you are not selecting an object in a slide, but are just in Filmstrip mode instead, pressing Ctrl+D will duplicate the slide. And, if you are not in Google Slides but on a random website, pressing Ct
Published in March 2016, this is one of my favorite posts from our Port Huron Schools EdTech Weebly blog . What is a Doctopus, you ask? And for that matter, what is a Goobric? I'm so glad you asked. I took a lengthy look at both tools and put together this step-by-step guide/article that I hope will help teachers tie together three great Google student assessment and management tools: Google Classroom, Goobric (a Google online rubric) and student assignment submissions (linked through Doctopus) all in one place.
