Back in January I shared a post titled “Breaking the Ice with a Collaborative Google Prez,” in which I explained how I’ve been using a Google Presentation, shared with anyone who has the link to have edit access, as the foundation for a social “ice breaker” and reflection activity in my online class. That original post with provide you with more context about the activity, including a sample of the template I provide to students (i.e. what the presentation looks like before they edit it).
This week I took some time to create a guide to explain the steps involved with creating this type of activity. The guide, however, is written with an in-class activity in mind but if you’re interested in understanding the nuts’ n bolts of how to set up a Google Presentation with the most effective sharing settings for this type of activity, I think you’ll find it helpful.
