5 Creative Ways to Use Google Slides

Sure, you can use Google Slides to present information, but you can do so much more with Google Slides! Aim to include at least one of the 4 Cs in your activities: creative thinking, collaboration, critical thinking, and communicating ideas. In this webinar, Google Certified Innovator Alice Keeler will show you five creative ways to use Google Slides with your students and how they can be used to include at least one of the 4 Cs in a lesson.

Increasing Critical Thinking Using Google Workspace Apps

Critical thinking can be measured using the Depth of Knowledge (DOK) scale, which ranges from 1 to 4. We often rely on lower level tasks; even science and math classes can lean heavily on DOK 1 tasks. For any subject or grade level, we all benefit from considering the DOK levels of our lessons and assignments. Learning improves when we provide students more opportunities to perform at a DOK 2 or DOK 3 level. In this webinar, Google Certified Innovator Alice Keeler will share activities using Google tools that can support increased critical thinking in your classroom.

Send Custom Feedback from a Google Form to a Google Doc Report

Google Forms is an amazing tool for allowing students to submit answers and letting you see all student responses in one place. Forms saves you from wasting time opening individual documents and also provides you with the data you need to adjust instruction and differentiate. The feedback features in Google Forms are okay, but you can make them even better with Google Apps Script. If you can copy and paste you can code!  In this workshop, Alice Keeler will introduce you to the basics of coding with Google Apps Script and help you to skip using email as the method for communicating feedback to students. Instead, provide a feedback document that you coded yourself! 

Student Engagement with Google Tools

Student engagement matters for learning. Google Workspace apps such as Docs, Sheets, Forms, Slides, Jamboard, Classroom, and more do not create engagement by themselves. Additionally, paper activities do not always translate well to a digital medium.
