What You Can Do With Google Slides
- Create and embed animations – so fun to watch this happen in real time!
- Collaborate and make real-time edits to any part of the presentation. Like other Google Drive apps, you can invite and share your slides with anyone!
- You can chat and comment on the slides too. Great for getting some feedback. Are you a teacher? This could be a killer feature for you as you provide insight and feedback into your students’ slides. Watch them create and learn in real-time!
- Use some pretty nice-looking (free) templates at no extra charge
- Access your slides offline and even edit them. They’ll update as soon as you get back into wi-fi range.
- You can get the Android version now and iOS versions soon – that’ll let you edit your slides on the go using the simple app.
- Import and export PowerPoint! This means you can easily start using the Google Slides software on just about any project you’re working on.
Everyone has their own presentation style, but here are a few tips for presenting:
- Engage your audience with questions, humor or a personal story.
- Take it slow. You will probably speak faster than you realize.
- Pauses are OK. Don't try to fill the silence. People need time to process the information you present to them.
- Talk, don't read. A presentation is an opportunity to elaborate on what people read. Give them some stories or example that reinforce the information on your slides.
- Make sure the text is large enough for everyone to see. The text need to be at least 2 inches tall on the projector.
- Keep content succinct and clear.
- Use bullet points rather than sentences or paragraphs (unless quoting).
