Creating an Interactive Virtual Classroom in Google Slides

Bitmojis are becoming increasingly popular as teachers have looked for new ways to connect with their students. If you're asking what a bitmoji is, it is like a cartoon version of yourself you can include on your website and in other platforms online. In my ITF group, we learned about creating virtual classroom spaces in Google Slides using our bitmojis that can then be embedded on our websites or Canvas spaces. This can be a great space to create where you can add links to websites, videos, etc for students to frequently access. Some have used this as a way to create a virtual field trip. Explore the links below to see examples of what other teachers have created and see if how it can inspire you to continue growing in your use of technology.
