As some of you might have heard, Google recently released a new version of Google Sites. It is so slick!  You have the Edit panel that allows you to put all of your items in your site.  Then, you simply drag and drop the items to where you want them on your page.

To create new pages, click on the Pages tab of the edit panel and create your new page. Then, just drag it and drop it wherever you want it in your navigation.

Select a theme to add some color and choose an image for your header background. Google will also automatically adjust your background image and text for readability.

Starting on October 13th you will notice that the Research tool is no longer available! It has been replaced with the Explore tool. The Explore tool works similarly to the research tool in that you can research on the web, but it does not add the citations at the bottom of the page. read more
