This weekend, I attended the #EdTechTeam SW Missouri Google Summit. Out of three workshops I prepared for the weekend, one was not scheduled. So, rather than let all that prep time go to waste, I thought I would share my presentation and lessons with you.
The workshop focuses on Google Drawings. I know I have written about Google Drawings before, but I can’t stress enough how much I rely on and love Google Drawings. So much so, that I use it to make lesson samples, clip art, banners, website headers, and featured images for my articles.
So here are the tips I have to share. Take a look at my slideshow, and download a few lesson samples so you can see how I use Google Drawings.
Vend-A-Topic – If you haven’t ready my previous article on this, take a look. I created a vending machine background on Google Drawings, and then put it in Google Slides to create an interactive learning tool.
Labeling Activities – Use Shapes as boxes for students to label parts of a diagram. Make sure to provide instructions to “double-click” in the box to type.
Drag and Drop Sorting Activities – Google
Drawings is a perfect tool for drag and drop learning. Create your own clip art from shapes, or insert images from a Google Safe Search. Take a look at the sample at right.
Create Infographics – Use Google Drawings to create an infographic about a specific topics. Get students involved by having them create informational signs about Novels,
Movies, Science Topics, Social Studies events or Problem-Solving and Theorems in Math.
But wait! There’s more. Take a look at the slideshow from my presentation below. If you have your own tips, share them in the comments section on this article. Enjoy!
