Teachers are increasingly being asked to integrate technology into their instruction (insert citation).  Google Slides is a free, cloud-based presentation tool within Google Drive that teachers can use to quickly and easily integrate technology into their classroom.  In this section of the module, teachers will learn how to use Google Slides to create interactive activities that their students can engage with to learn rigorous material in both math and literacy. 

Before we learn how to create activities with Google Slides, we will first learn howsee ways teachers currently use Google Slides within their classrooms!  Using the Flipgrid link below, record yourself answering the following questions:
