Did you know that Google Slides are for more than just slideshows?
If you’re familiar with the interactive features of Slides, you know what a powerful tool they can be for engagement and collaboration. If not, you’re missing out on one of the easiest, most effective digital tools available!
In this workshop, you’ll explore several ways to supercharge your lessons with interactive Google Slides. You’ll collaborate with fellow educators, as you experience the student perspective, and learn how to create your own interactive Slides lessons.

Why Use Interactive Google Slides?
You may be familiar with Google Slides for creating presentations and slideshows. But this interactive Google Slides workshop will prove that they can do so much more!
Google Slides are great for collaborative and independent learning. Simply turn your print worksheets into digital activities. Or, explore Slides’ full potential and design your own activities that your students will love.
