Engage, Educate, and Inspire with Google Slides

Using Google Slides for interactive learning can change the way students engage, process, and apply concepts. Teacher-led slide presentations can now be shared directly with students for greater interaction and enhanced comprehension. When students can view Google Slides at their own pace on their own device, they have the ability to pause, go back, and interact with the included digital features for a more personalized learning experience. They also have the power to take control of their learning, increase curiosity with inquiry tasks, and apply their knowledge through collaborative activities included right in a Google Slide deck.

At-home learning without home Internet Access

Teachers can prepare lessons in Google Slides, and have students enable offline use while they still have Internet access. Students can continue to work on assignments, and explore content in slides while away from school using offline mode.
