I had a presentation in my grad school class last night, and while preparing for it, I actually Googled "How to make Google Slides more interesting"...and that's how I got here. Did you know that you can turn on an interactive Q&A option when you're presenting in Google Slides?
Here's are quick steps:
Step 1: The option to turn it on is found in 2 places: either under "present" or when you're already presenting, in the toolbar screen on the bottom.
|Step 1, Option 1|
|Step 1, Option 2|
HOW this went in my class: My screen in class wasn't letting me show only the "presenter view," so my whole class was able to see my notes. This wasn't a problem in the setting I was in, but it would have been a problem if I were given a formal presentation. I would expand the usage with this from just Q&A and also allow for comments. I can see many uses for this--especially in classes that are lecture-heavy.
Leave us a comment below if you have other suggestions, uses, or experiences in your class!
