Google Slides is one of the many “Magical Tools” embedded into GSuites for Education. It is a versatile tool and often carries the “Stigma” of being a presentation tool. The last few years I’ve discovered a myriad of ways to incorporate slides for supporting students of all learning abilities. Sharing slides in “Edit Mode” provides students the opportunity to use Google Slides as interactive and Collaborative Activities. Activities such as my “Phases of the Moon” Google Slides Interactive support students with independently learning content and internalizing the information through the use of several methods.
Below is a video explaining how to use the Phases of the Moon Google Slides.
