When teaching in a world of unpredictability, it is important that we are able to adjust our teaching to the situations we are in. Creating an online interactive notebook using Google Slides gives students the opportunity to complete, organize and utilize their notes in a much more efficient manner.

Proposal summary

Purpose & objective

The purpose of this presentation is to help educators get started creating and using online interactive notebooks within their classrooms. When I first wanted to create this for my own classroom, I did research and found the best ideas to help me wrap my head around the product that I wanted for my students.

Educators will be taught certain tools that they can use under Google Slides to create the version of an interactive notebook that they may want and also how I chose to conduct this material in my own classroom. I used the master view on Google Slides to create every single one of my online resources for hybrid learning this year including this notebook.

I have found a lot of success in this type of learning tool because it allowed by students to stay organized and utilize their notes more than they would of had it been on paper. Most of my students would lose their notes or misplace them when they were done on paper and pencil, but now they have access to these notes anywhere. It is perfect for my students who choose to do hybrid for the day because they still have access to the notes and materials that we did in class.

How to use the Master View on Google Slides to create any online resource: 10 minutes
