Update Student Slides with First Slide
When you make a copy of a document for every student it is slow to open and give feedback. It just takes time for digital documents to load, especially if the internet is not super fast. First Slide allows you to give feedback without opening up any student slides. A new feature to First Slide allows you to update student slides by pushing a slide to all students.
Push a Slide
You have assigned each student a Google Slides. Now you want to build on their template… but how. Open each students Google Slides and copy and paste a new slide into each student slide? You could do that. But isn’t there a better way?
After making a copy of the template alicekeeler.com/firstslide, wait for the code to load and use the Add-on menu to select “First Slide” and “Show sidebar.”
Use the sidebar to click “Select folder.” Choose a folder in Google Drive that contains student Google Slides.
After selecting the folder locate the “Reuse menu” button in the sidebar.
Push a Prompt
Use the sidebar buttons to push a prompt to all student slides. This adds a slide to each Google Slides with whatever text prompt you push.
Push a Slide
If you have slides pre-prepared with images and other graphic organizer elements you can push an entire slide from a presentation. Click on “Send Slide.” You will be prompted to paste the URL of the Google Slides presentation that has the slide you want to push. Then it will ask you indicate which slide number you want to push to all student slides. That slide will appear in each of the student slides.
