Google Slides is one of the best presentation tools out there (well, besides Keynote). It is simple, easy to use, and, most importantly, is integrated with Google Drive allowing you a streamlined and synchronized workflow. However, the real strength of Slides resides in its templates and add-ons, two features that are often overlooked by teachers and students that use this platform. In today’s post we will cover the first feature, templates.
Google Slides has a Template gallery where you as a teacher or student can access a wide variety of professionally looking pre-made templates which you can easily accommodate into your own presentations. All you need to do is add your content and, even better, add your own personal touch by inserting your own customizations. I have gone through the selections available in the Template gallery and have picked out the titles below. These are template that are directly relevant to us in education. To access and use any of these templates, head over to Template Galley, click to expand the gallery and scroll down to view the titles.
This is a 10-slides template students can use to create their own portfolios.
This is ideal for creating visually appealing yearbooks.
