So, I wanted to do a quick review of my favorite slides template site, Fun out about this site during a GAFE camp, if I’m not mistaken (all these PDs start to blend together after a while…lol).

I am very grateful to the person who showed me SlidesCarnival.  Full disclosure – I stink at creativity.  Seriously. But that’s a fight for another post.  Anyhow, I really like that SlidesCarnival takes the creativity aspect out of trying to get the best looking slides for presentations, as they have already created a bunch! They are really fun, easy to copy and use, and heck, the word free really helps!  (They license their stuff Creative Commons License Attribution 4.0 .  You can share and adapt, but have to give credit, and you can’t sell it as your own). Definitely recommend these to those of us who are not creative enough (or simply just don’t have the time) to make a pretty presentation slide!  Thank you SlidesCarnival for being out there!!!

Level 2 Certification Obtained

imageI don’t know how this slipped by me, but I forgot to announce that I am a Level 2 Certified Google Edicator!!! I’m quite excited. I really had to work hard for this level, but I’m so excited that I was successful!  I have been sharing this with my colleagues, trying to get them to look into this as well, at least the Level.  With so many schools now being GAFE schools, it just makes sense that they should go out and work on ways to increase their usage of GAFE at school.  I know that many don’t utilize it as best as they could, so I’m trying to be the role model for my building.

Ive been using more GAFE in my library lessons, as well as using Slides specifically in combination with Nearpod.  But, I’ll leave my quest for that certification for another post.  Until later…
