Of course the daughter of Google’s Eric Schmidt knows how to use Google Sites effectively!

Eric Schmidt and his daughter Sophie took a tip to North Korea to promote the use of the Internet in the country. Sophie created a Google Site called It Might Not Get Weirder Than This to showcase what she learned from her extraordinary and controversial visit to the country. 

Google Sites as a Summative Assessment

Sophie’s website could be an example of a summative assessment product. She used her site to demonstrate and present the knowledge she gained from her experience in North Korea. Likewise, students in the classroom can demonstrate the knowledge they acquired from a unit through the creation of a Google Site. Teachers can also have students work in groups and use Google Site as a wiki tool. This option involves student collaboration, active student learning, and student progress-monitoring.

Teachers can use this authentic assessment to identify strengths and weaknesses in their knowledge of the content.
