I love using Google’s Q and A feature to get students talking. In a 1-1 classroom it’s an efficient way to ask a question and elicit a response from the entire class; or rather from each student. Here’s five ways you can use Google Slides.
Last week we were working on questions. Students wrote questions about a story I had told and then I asked them to choose two to input into Slide Q & A. When they were writing I told them not to worry about whether they could answer the questions (in French), so when they wrote their questions into Q & A, I had them “like” the ones they could answer. I instantly knew which ones I could expect an answer for and which ones I couldn’t and then we answered the ones that were answerable. Here is a sample (mistakes and all!)
The best part about Q & A is that it doesn’t have to be just for questions! In fact, the first time I saw it I thought, “Questions? What? I’m going to have them write responses!”
