COOL IDEA FROM #GTTRIBE HASHTAG
Alexis Snider from Vietnam (via #GTTribe hashtag) shared that her fourth graders wrote informational picture books for an audience of second graders. The students created picture books after studying mentor texts. Then, they used Google Slides to create ebooks and they shared through Padlet. Her students in Vietnam received feedback from students in Colombia!
Meggin Verduzco (Michigan) — In the episode ‘ Slides can do what?’ You give an example of “hyperlinking” a slide deck. How did you do that? Is it different from a link? I noticed it said ‘slide 3’ on the link. Can you tell me how to do that? Thanks.
CHOOSE YOUR OWN ADVENTURE!
Meggin is working with 5th graders in a Choose your own adventure story/ PBL called The Island! http://digitaldivideandconquer.blogspot.com/ They are soo geeked and adding this would seal the deal! I showed them how to hyperlink, but this is easier. Thanks in advance.
