In my opinion, Google Slides is the most versatile app of the G Suite arsenal. In fact, I've dedicated an entire website, Google Slides: The Swiss Army Knife of G Suite, to things you can do with Google Slides that go beyond presentations.

A couple of months ago, I wrote a post on the extensive array of Canva templates for creating any type of multi-media content needed for students to make their learning visible. Within this list, Canva has included presentation templates divided into a wide variety of categories. Within each category, there are plenty of options from which to choose. Some are better suited for education/student purposes. A few of my favorite categories include:
  • Cool
  • Creative
  • Education
  • Keynote
  • Pitch Deck
  • Technology

I like to use Google Slides to recreate my own 'Thinglink"-style interactive graphics. In order to do that, you can customize your slide background using one of the presentation templates and customize it to your specifications such as this example created for The Cay

Check out the list of presentation templates, let your imagination run wild, and create a "cherrylicious" design.
