The Google Slides Master Class!

I frequently refer to Google Slides as the Swiss Army Knife of the G Suite tools because it is capable of being so much more than a presentation tool. In this course, you will learn how to use Slides in new and unexpected ways in your classroom that will engage your students and make learning more dynamic!

K-12 teachers are going to LOVE THIS COURSE!

This class is perfect for beginner to intermediate users to take their skills to the next level and become a Google Slides Master!

Resources

Instagram Stories with Google Slides

  • Have students create “Instagram Stories” with class content to demonstrate their learning. Think about, “What would this character’s / historical character’s Instagram story look like?” “How could you describe this using an Instagram Story?”

Google Slides icon boards for low-prep, visual thinking

  • These are like “infographics LITE” or “infographics for the time-strapped.” Have students drag visuals onto the page and add text to quickly demonstrate understanding.

Caption This! A fun, deep-thinking Google Drawings (or Slides!) activity

  • Use an image that connects to your content and add speech/thought bubbles to show what the people involved would say or think. It’s a quick way to boost the Depth of Knowledge of your activity -- and it’s low-prep!

Create a low-cost, printed yearbook with Google Slides (by Jennifer Scott)

  • Jennifer’s school created a full-color yearbook and designed the whole thing on Google Slides. It’s SUPER inexpensive and pretty easy to do.

Student collaboration in shared Google Slides

  • This classic Google Slides hack is still effective! Share a slide presentation with every student. Each student gets his/her own slide and does his/her work on it. Then, they can comment on each other’s work. Easy collaboration!

Create moveable digital activities with Google Drawings + Slides

  • This is a fun, digital take on manipulatives. Add objects on a slide (or Google Drawing) that you want students to drag into place. Lock certain pieces into place by making them part of the background!
