I have written in the past (opens in new tab) about using Google Slides as a lab reporting tool in my courses. Since writing about this process last year I have COMPLETELY embraced this method.
As a I wrote before, images, video, diagrams, etc., can all be captured easily, live conclusion presentations are seamless, hyperlinks to other resources to enhance conclusions can be added, and students can easily alter the template fonts and design to match their own vision for the report (so much more can be said).
This school year I have decided to streamline the process, adding instructions, embedded video, and rubrics to the slide template students will work in. Click here (opens in new tab) and here (opens in new tab) for a few template examples and here (opens in new tab) and here (opens in new tab) for associate student products.
A short post, but given the efficacy of this subtle instructional strategy, I felt it was worth sharing again!
