Adding collaboration to Google Slides makes it much more than just a presentation tool! In this session, we will discuss ways to increase student collaboration and engagement by harnessing the collaborative power of Google Slides. The use of Google tools to create and collaborate have become more prominent in the past 5 years. Now that many teachers are able to use these tools, we need to learn creative, out of the box ways to use them. We will demonstrate advanced features of Slides that help students create real, meaningful work. This session will help teachers move their student work across SAMR by giving students the opportunity to collaborate on new, rigorous tasks. Finally, we will look at examples of collaborative student projects including ebooks, comic strips, and video galleries created in Google Slides.
