In this post we are going to dive deeper into creative ways to use emojis in Google Docs beyond just writing prompts. As mentioned in my previous post, emojis are a great tool to use in student learning activities for many reasons:
- Since emojis are images, they can be used with students of any age, language, or reading ability.
- Also since they are images, they can provide and represent a wide range of ideas since each student will have their own interpretations of the pictures.
- Emojis are very popular with students, so they will likely have familiarity with the images.
- They are fun!
Note: Emojis appear differently on different operating systems. Because of this, the images may not look the same on every device. If you are using any modern computer or device (Chromebook, Android, iOS, Mac OS, Windows), the emojis should display well. However if you are using an older version of Windows earlier than Windows 8.1, the emojis do not appear in color and many may be missing.
