Google Slides is more than just for presentations!  Take a minute and check out "10 Google Slides activities to add awesome to classes”  to change your mindset.   #10 is great for those who have been thinking of student blogs – a nice starting point! http://ditchthattextbook.com/2015/02/02/10-google-slides-activities-to-add-awesome-to-classes/

You can make a video mash-up with YouTube videos?  Take a look at #4 in this article “5 Ways to Teach with YouTube” by Alice Keeler. http://www.alicekeeler.com/teachertech/2015/03/24/5-ways-to-teach-with-youtube/

What if...?

Something to think about...
Use or have your students use Haiku Deck for presentations instead of PowerPoint.  (for iPad and for Web) Haiku Deck Information, Tips and Ideas: https://docs.google.com/a/aisdapps.com/document/d/1z39kT9atwP_Tj19aAPvy9bUgtDq-ofvDTjgKX0xvMlI/copy#

Use TodaysMeet with Reading Groups – one teacher’s lesson with her 1st grade class http://www.edgaged.net/2015/03/todaysmeet-reading-groups.html

Learn how one Honors American Lit teacher had a silent class discussion, using Google Classroom, while he was away at a conference…making sure learning took place even while he was gone.   http://www.thenerdyteacher.com/2015/03/silent-class-discussion-with-google.html?utm_content=bufferaab5c&utm_medium=social&utm_source=twitter.com&utm_campaign=buffer
