My dear friend Tisch Nye taught me something new today. She is a technology coach for our district, but use to be an art teacher. In fact, she was the art teacher that I took over for 10 yrs ago at Tulip Grove Elementary. Anyway, she was at Tulip Grove to do internet safety with our second graders. She stopped by to discuss the workshop we're co-leading Thursday. I wanted to do a make & take for art teachers that was technology focused. My thought was to create a library of art focused Power Points that we could have at our disposal. Have 20+ art teachers working all day...we could have a ton of Power Points! However, Tisch suggested using Google Presentations instead. I had not heard of it before, but she gave me a quick lesson & I was ready to go! Here is my first creation. I took the pictures I used from the coil pot post the other day. What do you think?? Have you used Google Presentations before? I think I like it, just takes some getting use to.
***Ok...I know that the words are super close to the frame & it kind of cuts them off. This was my first try. I would move the words & pictures up a bit next go-round. Also, why is it better than power point??? From what I can tell so far...you can access it from any internet site by pulling up your google account. You can share it in doc & have others work on it . Great for group presentations. No need to e-mail huge files or flash drives! Easy to use!! That is what I've seen so far!***
