Animation in Google Slides

When we think of animation, most of us think of cartoons. In Google Slides we can use animations to enhance student learning. "The Big Reveal," and sometimes the slow reveal, can provide a unique impact in presentations. Animations can be used to to make a big reveal, to create suspense, or to allow feedback and participation.

See how we use animations in math and other subject areas to enhance our presentations.

The Hour of Code is back and better than ever!

Computing jobs are the number one source of new income in The United States, and there are currently 500,000 job openings that require coding. Coding jobs are in every industry and are growing at twice the rate of other jobs. 

The Hour of Code helps to give students an opportunity to learn some basics of coding in an enjoyable format. Minecraft, music making, homophones, robots, and secret codes are some of the fun activities that you and your students will be able to enjoy during the Hour of Code.

Google Drawings

Google Drawings is a simple tool that is very powerful. By combining simple shapes you and your students can create complex drawings, mind maps, charts, and infographics. You can also use this tool with photos or other images to get your message out.

Drawings can be collaborative, and they can be added to other projects, Google Docs, web sites, or blogs.

You don't have to be an artist to create works of art with Google Drawings.
