    hAppy Friday! Adding Videos to Google Presentations!

    Spice up a presentation by adding video. Students love to watch video clips to introduce, reinforce, and provide a summary of concepts. I use short video clips in almost every presentation I give. Watch the video below to see just how easy the process is.

    Inserting Video into Google Presentation

    Here are a few reasons I love using Google Presentations for School:

    • all presentations get a URL code
      • makes presentations easy to share
      • I tie the URL for the presentation to a QR code that I display at the beginning of the presentation.  That way students can follow along with the presentation on their own devices. (great for the students that sometimes miss material)
      • edits are live, no need to re-save and send out another copy for corrections
