Like many of you, I taught remotely during the spring of 2020. One of the most obvious issues I noticed during that spring was my students’ inability to interact with technology. I had assigned lessons without realizing that they needed technological skills to complete the assignment. The platform I utilized most often was Google Slides. While I knew how to use Google Slides, my students were lacking with this skill set.

This fall, I decided that I would not make that error again. I created a lesson that took students through the basics of Google Slides, and then I had them practice those skills by interacting with the platform to create a “virtual locker.” This process provides an introduction for my students, and they learn how to use Google Slides in the process.
