Today we started to explore Google Slides (Google's version of Windows PowerPoint). Learning how to create educationally appropriate presentations at this level will set you up for success in Middle School, High School, College, and Beyond. 

We entered the application by logging in to your Google Account --> Going to Gmail --> Select Google Drive from the Google App Menu --> Selecting the NEW tab and selecting Google Slides.

We learned how to:
  • create text boxes and add text.
  • change the font, font size, and color of the text
  • add images using google image search 
  • difference between jpeg and png
  • copy and paste image address (URL) into google slides
Homework Assignment: Try to make 3-5 slides on the Google Slide created in class. Don't worry - you wont break it.
