Collaboration in Slides with Q&A

via Technology Tidbits by Twyla Felty

I have never been a fan of PowerPoint, Slides or any other teacher-dominated presentations in the classroom. These are great tools for certain audiences, and I do use them when presenting at conferences and when speaking as an advocate for Asperger’s Syndrome. However, I have never used the “lecture and present” format as a classroom teacher. In my opinion, this overused, instructional tool destroys classroom dialogue, and the “pre-packaging” of information prevents higher level thinking and reading skills that students need to develop.

That being said, teacher-driven presentations are still the preferred instructional method for many teachers, so I am always on the hunt for ways to make them better for the victims….errrr….students.  So, it is with great delight that I share the good news: Google has added some collaborative elements to Slides!

On “May the 4th be with you day”, Google announced changes to Slides that are definitely a force to be reckoned with. Now the presenter can share a short link that allows the audience to ask questions as the presentation is ongoing. These questions can also be voted on by others, enabling the presenter to hone in on and answer those questions of greatest interest or concern.

WOW! This is a game changer! The back-channeling of questions is now part of the record in Google Slides, the audience is interacting with the ongoing presentation in live-time and the audience members are even interacting with one another by voting on posted questions.

Thank you Google!

Now, teachers, let’s get those classroom presentation in the cloud, convert them to Google Slides, and get busy involving students in the questioning and learning process!

P.S.–if you start using Slides, they have a cool, new laser pointer to use as you present!!

Regional Track Meet, Baseball, and This Week

With victories in their last two games of the regular season, the Eustace Bulldog Baseball Team secured a playoff spot. The Bulldogs will be facing White Oak in the bi-district round. It will be a best of three series. The first game will be played on Friday. The second game and the third game if necessary will be played on Saturday. At present time, we do not have a firm venue for the playoff games. I will pass that along as soon as we know something definite.

At the Regional Track Meet this past weekend, EHS had two runners qualify for the state track meet. Colton Summerall won the 110m hurdles with at time of 15.13! Colton will be accompanied to the state track meet by Ericsen Gudjohsen who placed 2nd in the 1600m run with a time of 4:33! Ericsen also placed 3rd in the 3200m. Congratulations to Ericsen and Colton on making it to the State Track Meet!!
