Google Slides is often used in the classroom as a way for students to share their learning. However, the features and tools within Google Slides allows for it to be used in many other ways.

Participants will learn how to reset their thinking and begin creating interactive activities and/or lessons for their students to implement the 4Cs. Throughout the session, participants will use their device and Google account to practice the skills and tools being showcased. The session will start by breaking down the necessary steps in planning and setup of creating a Slides activity using the Backwards Design model. This includes page setup, themes, forced copy and other pertinent skills. We will also focus on the importance of the Master Slide aspect and how it can be used in various ways. Discussion of different features that can be inserted into Slides (animations, images, videos, etc.) as well as different formats will be included.
