Google Slides: Slides Q&A


While at TCEA 2017, I discovered Google Slides has begun to offer a Q&A feature. This is an interesting tool for presentations. By using Slides Q&A, a presenter has the ability to collect real time feedback from audience members. Audience members can post questions or comments and other members can like the question or post letting the presenter know what audience members would be interested in hearing more about.

Let me just say, I haven’t been this excited about a new tech tool since I was introduced to Flipgrid. Are you curious yet about the tool?

How about now?

I am just going to call it a game changer for literacy! At least in my humble view.

“How does it work”, I can hear you thinking. You can take any article from the internet, add questions (multiple choice and discussion), highlight important text, leave notes, and add YouTube videos and images. You can also record yourself reading. Then, you can assign the article through your Google Classroom.

Not only is this an excellent resource for teachers to create documents for their students, this is an excellent way for students to read and process text. Students can record themselves reading aloud and…
