Use Sidebar Gadget to Add Classroom Tools

Depending upon the blog content a sidebar gadget might be useful. If a student is maintaining a blog as a note binder they may want to include a homework calendar in a Blogger Sidebar.  The teacher may want to show off an auto-run gallery of their students artwork in the sidebar. Either one of these samples are easy to do. It is simply a matter of combining different Google APPs for Education (GAfE) to make this happen. I like using the Blogger html/javascript gadget to make this magic happen.

  4. Open Calendar Tab & Click Calendar you want to use
  5. Scroll Down to Embed this Calendar
  6. Copy Code
NOTE: Make sure to check the Calendar Share Settings. This should be set to share with a group of people or to public if needed.
