Lisa Thumann on Google sites
Google sites is Google's "version" of a wiki
Uses for google sites:
Use a google site for teaching teachers about google apps
Use for your portfolio on the web (story of your professional development and experience). Here is an example of mine that I have started.
Embedding google apps is easy in sites. Non-google apps can still be done. Embedding voicethread onto a google site: Add to igoogle - send to igoogle from voicethread. Click about this gadget... You are copying the URL of the voicethread to put in the site.
*Can also use widgetbox to send in.
