Presentation Tools to Use This Year
Google slides has a nice feature that allows the audience to ask questions while the speaker is presenting. This is a nice feature because it adds to audience engagement as they can non only ask questions, but "vote" for questions pop up in the question feed that the presenter can respond to based on popularity or interest.
|After clicking "Present" select "Presenter View" in the lower left hand corner.|
|When this prompt comes, select "Start Now"|
|Viewers will see questions which can be posted with identify or anonymously.|
|Teachers can respond to questions as needed.|
