Google Slides and Drawings as Research Tools
In this session, participants will learn ways to use Google Slides and Google Drawings to engage students in research, critical thinking and creativity. Participants will learn to leverage info-graphics to help students of all ages research new information.
Slides as Notes
Click Here to make a Copy of our Project Notes
Every project is going to include some research. Without structured expectations, our research notes may vary from a complete page of plagiarized wiki-notes to hand scrawled illegible disconnected
thoughts. Consider using slides as notes:
1. Each slide can be pre-built to collect the information desired
2. Later in the project, the notes become the presentation, so there is no loss of time.

Include Student Voice on Google Slides
When a student narrates their slide into vocaroo, their voice lives in the cloud. If a slide has the vocaroo QR code on it, anyone can scan the code and listen to the student narrate their slide.
1) Open Vocaroo.com
along the way. Sometimes a moment of reflection leads to a breakthrough that propels a learner to the finish line on a project! This info-graphic was produced by Ryan O'Donnel (@Creativeedtech on Twitter) and can be used in many ways:
- Use this as a summary of research found about a project
- Use this as a summary of work engaged in by the group
- Use this as an important dates template for a historical project
