Using Google drawings to create interactive and visual images

Using Google drawings to create interactive and visual images

Google drawings seems to be one of the google apps that most people do not know much about and is underutilized by almost as many. It's ease of use and sharing is something we can all appreciate as we work with it more often. 

I read a great post today on how to use Google drawings as an interactive and visual learning tool. I love incorporating drawings with my google slide presentations to spruce up "notes" for the classroom. I won't attempt to recreate what is already posted on the site, so I'll just send you there for the details. Check back soon for a how to video for those interested.

Check out the link below to learn more about how to create your interactive images for your class.

Digital Interactive Notebooks with Slides and Drawing

I know there are lots of ideas but MCSD has their own google domain so I created a tutorial to create digital notebooks within GAFE using Google Slides and Google Drawing.  This allows teachers to create a static slide background and an interactive portion for students to view and interact with via typing, drag and drop, or drawing depending on what you want them to complete.
