Coming from a Microsoft Office world, I always thought of Google Slides as a Slide Deck. A place to make slides and add in cool transitions to wow my audience.
It was not until Michelle Armstrong, Regional Director of EdTechTeam Canada, showed me that you can edit the size of a slide and really change it into a working document where you have no limitations on where you can add in images, write, and create.
When you have Google Slides open, go to File -> Page Set-Up.
This will allow you to then choose “Custom” and enter in the size of slide you would like to have.
You can have your standard piece of paper – 8.5 x 11 inches, or experiment to make the size that best works for your creation.
Now your favourite GSuite Tool has just turned into the most powerful tool you and your students have access to!
