Discovered this fabulous feature as I was tallying my mileage for our Middle School Cooking Winterim* experience this week.
Simply type in your Google search:
Distance between (address or business name) and (destination),
Just for fun, I took it a bit further, and discovered that this works for distances in mere feet too, like how far is it from my house to the house across the street, for instance (FYI 36 feet). Isn't that the coolest? 😎
I think this would make a fun prompt in math class, to launch problems with individuated solutions.
*"Winterim is designed to expand the Seabury Hall program beyond the classroom through a variety of offerings with an experiential approach to learning. Winterim provides students with the opportunity to work in groups composed of representatives from each grade level. The multi-age experience allows our community to become closer, form friendships with students from other grade levels and enhance understanding, appreciation and support for each other, our community and our unique Maui culture." -- school website

The new Google Sites arrived for everyone in November (Finally!). And according to many early adopters, Sites is a cinch to use.
What does the new Google Sites have to offer and how does it compare to the classic version?. Mike Reading, Google Certified Teacher and Trainer and Microsoft Master Educator. Using Technology Better, no pub. date.The new Google Sites, with 🎉 drag-and-drop and 🎉 real-time co-editing, is looking simple for the moment (just a few themes to choose from), but things are guaranteed to change, ala Google's MO. Luckily, my favorite feature is already in place: 🎉 seamless integration with other GSuite products. And a must-have feature? 🎉 automatic optimization of Sites for different devices.
(One drawback is that you can't move your classic site over to the new.)

If you're the type who likes to jump right in and try new things, all you will need is the Google Sites Help Center website, and a Google Sites Cheat Sheet, which you can download HERE.

For those who would like a little assistance with visuals (always pausable) and a friendly, authoritative voice, try the video tutorials below, created by excellent trainers I personally trust.
The video tutorials are in reverse chronological order. I will add more I recommend, as they become available. Grab a cup of your favorite beverage for the shorter tutorials, or linger with a second cup for the longer tutorials: your choice!
