NOT All Students Turning In The Same Thing

Christine Monge shared on Twitter that she tried using Collaborative Google Slides with her class. She was absent and had her students all collaborate on the same Google Slides document. Expecting students to write a paragraph on the slides or some bullet points, she was happily surprised.

23 Unique Google slides

The students were all on the same document, so ONE document to review. However, she did not get a homogeny of responses. Students used their own creativity to clearly communicate their ideas.

  • Collaboration.
  • Creative thinking.
If all the students submit the same thing, that is NOT creative thinking and probably not critical thinking.

How do students interject themselves into the assignment?

Do students feel it is okay to take some creative license with the assignment?

Does every student submit the same thing?
