Get your students EXCITED about learning! Enter to win my Google Slides Collaborative Black History Month Student Project!
Today I wanted to share my favorite way to get my students EXCITED about my class, my subject, and most importantly - about LEARNING!
I am using a collaborative Google Slides project this February with my 6th grade Computer Tech students to learn about Black History Month. My students absolutely LOVE working on and editing a digital project at the same time as their peers, and Google Slides is my favorite tool to use for this purpose.
What could possibly be more exciting to a teacher than seeing students really excited about learning? My thoughts are....not too much of anything!
Every SINGLE time that I do a project with my students in a collaborative Google Suite type of project, they ALWAYS ask me if they can continue working on the project "together" when they go home for the day. How often do your students ASK to go home and do SCHOOLWORK??? Before I started creating and using collaborative Google Slides projects, my answer to this was NEVER!
If you aren't sure how to navigate Google Slides or how to properly share Google Slides with the correct editing permissions for this project, be sure to get my Google Slides tutorial. It explains everything one could possibly need to know about sharing and editing a Google Slide project.
Why do I think that student collaboration is an incremental key to student learning? For starters, I am a firm believer in student-centered learning. Additionally, I believe that higher-level learning (such as synthesizing information from several publications or online resources) can have a much larger impact when completed collaboratively.
