Interactive Google Slides are the easiest way to engage your students for in-person or online learning. In this Google Slides workshop, you’ll learn how to turn your Slides into collaborative, hands-on lessons for any subject, standard, and grade level.
We’ll cover every step of planning and teaching with Slides. You’ll work through example lessons as a student. And learn to design your own activities from scratch, from print resources, or by modifying our templates.
We’ll also look at how you can use Slides for assessment and student portfolios. And how easy it is to integrate any slides activity into Google Classroom.
Finally, we’ll cover the practical aspects of planning, teaching, and assessing problem-based and project-based lessons. You’ll leave the Google Slides workshop with our most popular Google Slides lesson templates, and all the resources you need to get started right away.
Benefits of Using Interactive Google Slides in Your Classroom
Google Slides are one of the most flexible and effective digital tools for your classroom. And if you’re already using Google Classroom, it’s easy to create and collect Slides assignments, and even create collaborative groupings.
Unlike most online platforms, Slides can be used to teach any subject, any standard, and (almost) any grade level. They’re a great way to combine direct instruction, active learning, and assessment. Simply combine informational slides with interactive slides and questions, to create complete lessons.
The flexible layout of Slides makes them easy to design and use. If you’ve ever struggled to get images and text to go where you want to, Slides is the answer.
Google Slides makes it easy to create backgrounds and designs that your students can’t change. As well as text boxes for students to fill, and shapes they can slide. They can even upload images or insert them right from their webcam.
- From Scratch: Learn all the features you need to make any interactive slide you’d like
- Templates: Modify our lesson templates to match your subject, standard, and grade level
- Import: Turn your existing worksheets and print activities into an interactive digital lesson
Your slides lessons can be used for independent or collaborative work time. Or you can assign them as freestanding asynchronous lessons.
If you’re looking to go beyond a lecture and worksheet lesson model, this interactive Google Slides workshop will show you how.
