Google Slides Photo Words - Advanced Webinar

I recently shared my blog post and tutorial video about creating "Photo Words" with Google Slides. This is a fun activity for students to take any word and put an image inside of the word.

This engaging project can allow student to:
  • Visualize any vocabulary word
  • Create a "One Word" for the year
  • Summarize a story
  • Learn a new word (in their language or other)
  • Represent a location
  • Tell about themselves
  • Recap a year
  • Make a logo
  • And so much more!
My original blog post and 16-minute tutorial video were designed to help you and your students learn the basics of this activity, but there was so much more that I couldn't cover in the short introductory video.

To help with this I did a 90-minute live-stream webinar where we did a deep dive into creating Photo Words. In the video I go step-by-step through the process of creating four different advanced designs.

See below to access the recorded webinar video, as well as other support resources from the training. And again, I would love to see what you and your students create!

🔗 Share your Photo Words

If you and your students create a Photo Word, you have several options for sharing or using it.
  • You can download it by clicking "File" then "Download" then "PNG image".
  • You can share it through the normal "Share" button.
  • You can publish it by clicking "File" then "Share" then "Publish to the web". Here you can get a published "Link" or the code to "Embed" the slide.
If you or your students create Photo Words, I would love to see what gets made. Feel free to send them to me or tag me, and if you share them on social media, use the hashtag:
