Taking Familiar Digital Tools to the Next Level: Google Slides and Docs

Whether teaching and learning in a classroom or virtual space, digital tools can be leveraged as a means for students to share ideas, evaluate competing ideas, and give and receive critique. In this Professional Learning Unit, we explore how to leverage Google Slides, Google Docs and the Read&Write for Google Chrome extension (free version) to support synchronous and asynchronous pair-, small group- and whole group-discussions between students. We also share strategies to create opportunities for all students to participate equitably in these discussions.
