In this post, you can learn how to use free templates and themes to break-up the mundane presentations you see from your students day after day.
This is one of my favorite tips! It is so easy to create ebooks in Google Slides. This is a great project idea for individual student projects or collaborative writing projects, you can even have students create their own illustrations. And the little ones can even create picture books!
Did you know you can tell slides to just show a clip of a video? Yep! You can also choose to mute audio, have a video automatically play, and even use your own videos stored in Google Drive.
Bring the fun and laughter of Jimmy Fallon and The Tonight Show into your classroom AND your professional development! In this post, I will show you how to use Jimmy’s Internet Pop Quiz as a model for a “Get to Know You,” game with a Googley twist!
I love learning menus, and it is one of my favorite ways to incorporate student choice and to differentiate learning. And with digital tools like G Suite for Education, it’s super easy to make menus interactive, digital, and more dynamic! Grab a Google Slides template and more!
This has been a super popular activity for back to school this year. A student-created vision board is a great way to help students set goals and visualize reaching them! And Google Slides is the perfect tool for student creation.

It seems there is always a new way to use it in the classroom and go BEYOND using tools as digital substitutes. In this guest post by Micah Shippee, you can learn How to Create Your Own “Apps” with Google Slides that mimic an app-like experience.
So this is one of my presentations that I turned into a blog post. These 25 little hacks will rock your world and help you change the way you use Slides in your classroom.
