Abstract

Teachers in the twenty-first century should inspire innovation, encourage teamwork, and educate students on communication skills. Teachers can use digital media such as Google sites to create autonomous learning settings. Tourism majors should use their English skills to promote tourism around the world. A study at SMK Negeri 1 Medan aims to improve students' writing skills by developing a tourism website using Google Sites. The ADDIE paradigm was employed in the study, which included XI grade pupils. According to the data, 90% of pupils lacked writing skills and wished to improve them on digital platforms. 10% of students were undecided about whether it was necessary for their future after graduation. After examining English test results as well as instructor and student reactions, the website was found to be 93% valid and successful in developing students' writing skills.
