Embed a Google Form
Google Forms has so much capability that embedding it into a class website can be beneficial. As a teacher, you could create a Form for students to offer feedback, reflection, or overall thoughts on the class. Or, have a Form available for parents to fill out to engage in conversation even further. Or, make use if Forms as an assignment where students are able to paste a link to generate a spreadsheet of ideas or completed projects.
Add a Flipgrid Video
I've often written about the amazing uses of Flipgrid in the classroom, but embedding one onto a class website would be just as cool. A few possibilities for use is allowing students to offer their thoughts on the class. Or, have the students log on and give a brief "overview" lesson on a topic that was covered in class. For the primary grades, parents could send in feedback or well wishes to their students through your website. Or, with the addition of Copilots, students could collaborate with other classes on the same grid using the website as a "hub" for access.
