Narrative and Creative Writing with Google Slides

Let's look beyond the slideshow! Google Presentations can be used for so much more than bulleted talking points. In this session, we'll see how Google Slides can be used to support and develop creative writers.

From comic books to graphic novels, mock Tweets and Instagram posts, to "choose your own adventure" stories - you’ll explore some of the innovative and creative ways your students can use Google tools to demonstrate their learning.

In this workshop, we will:

* Discuss Google Slides as a tool in the writing process.
* Share ideas how the use of mentor texts can enhance students understanding of literary elements such as narrative shifts and dialogue.
* Share options for digital student/teacher/peer feedback.
* Explore design principles of color and layout.
* Find free image resources that promote digitally-aware citizens.
* Investigate publishing possibilities including slides as an e-pub tool as well as inexpensive printing options.
