Creating Games Using Google Drawing

Google APPS for Education (GAFE) offers several APPS which can be used to create interactive activities.  One of the APPS I like is Google Drawing.  It is easy to create and once you have a finished activity the pieces can be moved! This is a valuable Ed Tech tool for the teacher and student alike.

  • Teacher creates interactive lesson plans
  • Students interact with lesson plan
  • Student creates an interactive activity
  • Student works in pairs using the activity

This is the steps I use to create a Game using Google Drawing:
