Beyond the Slideshow: Google Slides Activities for all Subjects
  • Time: 10:00am - 10:50am CST (11:00am - 11:50am EST)
  • Description: We all know Google Slides is a great tool for making multimedia slideshows. But did you know it can also be used to make "Choose Your Own Adventure" style stories, interactive quizzes, online comic strips, storybooks, stop-motion animation, manipulatives, formative feedback in class, peer editing activities, and more? In this session we will explore these and more non-traditional uses of Slides. Learn how students can use Google Slides to express themselves in more ways than just a presentation.

Making and Taking Tours with Google Earth
  • Time: 8:00am - 8:50am CST (9:00am - 9:50am EST)
  • Description: Google Earth isn't just for viewing our wonderful world, but can also be used for you and your students to create educational tours. With the Voyager tool you can explore hundreds of pre-made tours and activities. With the Project tool you can create your own tours by plotting points on the globe to make a 3D geographic tour of a story, historical event, interesting locations, or any concept you are exploring in class. Each location can include additional text, images, videos, links, and more. Learn how you and your students can create, collaborate, and share these Google Earth tools!
