Instructional Design & Curriculum Creation
Stay on Top, With Drag and Drop - Creating Interactive Digital Activities
In my session, participants will understand what drag and drop activities are. They will also understand what the different types of activities look like within Google Slides. The four types of drag and drop activities that will be demonstrated to participants are: fill in the blank, annotation, sorting/classifying, and scene/background creation. Participants will also learn how to revamp an already created curriculum by using the snipping tool. For each type of draggable activity that will be demonstrated to participants they will have access to examples of these activities that have actually been used within my own classroom. At the end of the session participants will receive a Hyperlink document that has links to my website, contact information, the session recording, and detailed directions on how to create draggable resources. This session focuses on teaching educators how to take a curriculum that was static to fantastic. Educators learn how to use shapes, color, text boxes, images and the explore tool within Google slides to elevate pre-created curriculum and make it both digital and interactive. This presentation really focuses on making curriculum more accessible by teaching teachers how to modify curriculum to fit all student needs. This presentation helps create more interactive activities which is great because not all students learn in the same way.
