Since I’ve been on the topic of reflection these past few days, I thought I would share the collaborative reflection activity that I shared a few days ago in my initial Positive Reflection post.
- I chose the questions I want my participants to answer in this case:
- What is something you learned from our course?
- What are you excited about trying?
- What value do you see in using Google Slides in your classroom?
- I create a slide with these questions on it, and then I copy and paste the slide so each participant will have their one slide in one large presentation.
- The presentation is then shared so anyone with the link can edit it.
- Participants each pick their own slide, personalize it, and answer the questions.
- Once everyone is done with their own slide, they go through and comment on each others slides.
This is very similar to the Google Sheets and Forms reflection I shared a few weeks ago as well, I try to end each of my courses with a reflective activity utilizing the tool from that course. In a classroom context, I think providing students with a choice of how they want to reflect could be a way to keep them engaged in this process, maybe creating a “Reflective Menu” of sorts.
Here are two more Google Slides examples that can be used to collaboratively reflect on a topic, feel free to use and remix these as well.(See directions below for how to make a copy)
To make a copy of the presentations above, click the gear on the bottom of the presentation window, select , once you are in editing mode, go to and select . You will then have your own copy in your Google Drive to edit and share.
