Hello, educators. Welcome to the KQED Education K-3 Teacher Tech Trainings. After today’s workshop, you should be familiar with the concept of slideshows in the elementary science classroom. You should also know the basics of PowerPoint, some design ideas for creating a slideshow, and how to navigate the web for good quality images.
The goal of this workshop is to get you to think about slideshows in your classroom and to develop a PowerPoint that covers a unit of science study that you can present to your students. Below, please take a moment to write down your ideas for this project. Please be brief… 2 to 5 sentences that explains your project — the topic, the kinds of images that you may use, and some design choices that will integrate into your slideshow.
Tomorrow, we will visit the blog and see some of your responses.
Here is Nancy’s beautifully engaging PowerPoint about birds.
How To Use Google PowerPoint
Remember, when you want to bring an image into your Google PowerPoint project, there are two ways to do this.
I feel that it is easiest to do #1 because you can also paste the URL in your citation slide at the end of the PowerPoint project.
To copy the URL of an image, you right-click and select “Copy Image Location”
Below, is the comments section. Please remember to post a comment that overviews your slideshow idea.
