Bitmojis and Avatars
Did you know you can add Bitmojis to your presentations and documents. This cartoon version of you may just help you connect with your students. WARNING: Not all Bitmojis are appropriate for the classroom.
Avatar Maker is a similar tool that would be good for students to use, especially if analyzing a character or historical figure.
Good visual design is more than aesthetically pleasing to the eye. Make information clearer, keep your students engaged, and create meaningful content with Google Slides and Power Point templates.
bit.ly is my favorite URL shortener because you can customize the URL. There is also a Google extension for easy access.
With a shortened URL, you will save time for your students and maintain some sanity for yourself. They will no longer have to enter website addresses that are extremely long, decreasing the chance of classroom interruptions because students have trouble typing in long sites.
