Choose Your Own Adventure With Google Drive

I’ve been developing several Google presentations and trainings for summer workshops. As some of you may know, I am a fan of menu/choice boards and facilitating teacher-centered learning experiences. In an effort to create choice, and differentiate for the multiple skill levels of educators, I have created a three-level, “Choose Your Own Adventure With Google Drive,” learning experience for educators. This is not all encompassing, and definitely leans toward the more novice skill levels, but I hope this will be useful to meet the needs of the educators.

I created the images using Canva, which is quickly becoming a favorite of mine. If you are new to Canva, it is web-based graphic design program. You can create images, presentation slides, posters and more. I’m sure I will have a dedicated Canva blog post coming soon!

After I created the Canva images, I then converted the images to Thinglinks. If you are new to Thinglinks, Thinglinks allow you to make images interactive with links, text and video. I love doing Thinglink Mashups! See my earlier blog post: A Thinglink and Glogster Mashup.

I have one central Thinglink that links to the three interactive skill levels. Each level has it’s own interactive Thinglink with links to published Google Docs. This was a tip I mentioned in my blog post last week: 5 Google Drive Tips Everyone Should Know. I’m not sure why more people do not use the “publish to the web” feature. It will turn a document into a very clean webpage. It’s a really nice feature.

I will update this post as I make adjustments and try to improve this activity. I’m anxious to give it a try!

How do you differentiate for different skill levels in your professional development and training?
