Google Slides & Slides Toolbox as an Image Creator for Seesaw Activities

Have you ever used Google Slides to create images?  Just like with Google Drawings, Slides has many tools that facilitate the creation of images.  From textboxes to shape and line tools, as well as the ability to change the background or insert photos, Google Slides can be a fabulous tool for teachers to create images to be exported and used in other environments.  

When I want to create a single, stand-alone graphic or image, I tend to use Google Drawings, but when I want to create a batch of images that are similar - such as images with spelling or sight words - I find that using Google Slides and the Slides Toolbox add-on is a quicker way to get the job done!

In this video tutorial, I explore how teachers can create images in Slides and then push them to Seesaw - to be used as templates in activities.
