Multi-Modal Learning with Google Sites

Today I not only discovered how to create and edit a Google Site, I also had the chance to create a quick multi-modal site for students to explore the story of the Three Little Pigs (see screenshot of my site above). Making the site multi-modal allows students to engage in a variety of learning activities and explore ideas and perspectives from various angles.

By clicking on the six links I found, students are challenged to look at the story from the wolf's perspective, explore  the challenges a wolf would face breaking into houses in our world, look at creative ways others have reinvented the story in other contexts, and they can also explore the traditional tale through collaborating with others in a play or engaging in an interactive reading site. There is so much material online that we are able to explore for the benefit of our individual learners, and today I was reminded of the fact of how much is right at my fingertips waiting to be discovered.

By scrubbing up on your Google site skills and getting your Google search on you can quickly create these simple but interactive sites for your class!


  1. I was super impressed by the speed at which everyone not only acquired the necessary skills but also came up with a context for learning critical thinking and applied the technical knowledge to make this engaging for learners. Well done!

  2. It was great to see everyones ideas and how we all had various perspectives Thank you for another great Friday, Dorothy!
