It Felt Like Christmas Morning…

There I was creating a tutorial using Google Slides when all of a sudden my eyes fell upon some new tools. I wanted to scream out with glee but knew no one in my household would understand. As both an Artist and Ed Tech Nerd I appreciate the addition of both the shadow and reflection tools in a Google Slide.

Google Slides is growing into one of my favorite publishing tools for creating. It has a lot to offer educators, students and creators alike. A Google Slide offers vast versatility for creating may different types of projects such as:

  1. Design images
    1. Clip art, logos, design art & etc…
  2. Presentations
  3. Publishing
    1. Books
    2. Newsletters
    3. Posters
    4. Flyers
    5. Cards
    6. Labels
  4. Animation
  5. Interactive Manipulatives
  6. Assessments
  7. Collaborative Brainstorming Tool
  8. Communication Tool
  9. Web Newsletters
  10. Basic Web Site builder

    Thanks for this post! I got to play with all the new features just a few days ago but now I can no longer see any of the new formatting options other than “recolor”. Do you still have the drop shadow feature?

      Sadly after I created the post the drop shadow and reflection feature disappeared from my private account. However I notice it is now in my G Suite for Education Account. I’m not sure what is happening but the artist in me hopes the tools come back to my private Google account.
