Add your introduction slide here
If you are just getting started with Google Slides, or if you’re a veteran, using Google Slides collaboratively is a great way to introduce Google Docs to the students. This intro activity demonstrates using collaborative documents, allows students to get to know each other and helps you to learn the students names.
Create a Google Slides presentation and share it with all of the students. In Google Classroom you will attach the Slides presentation as “Students can edit.” If you are not using Google Classroom, click on the blue share button in the upper right-hand corner. Click on the word “Advanced” in the bottom right-hand corner of the sharing box. Change the share properties from private to anyone with the link can edit. Alternatively, if you have all the email addresses of your students you can explicitly share the document with them.
Edit the Master
Duplicate Slide Layout
Rename the 2nd layout to “do NOT use.”
Click on the grey stripe outside of the slide master on the left or on the “x” in the upper-right corner of the slide master to exit editing the master.
Students Add a Slide
Each student creates their own slide, adds their name to the top and adds some information about themselves in the text box.
Keep quarter sheets of paper around for students to do their work on. They can use this technique to make their analog work digital. Students hold the quarter sheet of paper up to the webcam to capture the image into the slide.
Being in a collaborative document makes it easy to have students comment on each others work. Have students click on elements on other slides and insert a comment.
