4 Free and Easy Audio Recording Tools for Google Slides The ability to add audio to Google Slides has been one of the most requested features for many years. Being creative, we have worked around this limitation in the past by embedding YouTube videos in Slides, or using a tool like Screencastify to record a video of the Slides while speaking. Although those workarounds still have their place, it is wonderful that we finally have the option to add audio directly to a slide! Note: This feature is still rolling out to all Google accounts, so if you do not see it in your account yet, you should see it soon! Being able to add audio to Google Slides can be used in so many ways in school: Narrating a slideshowReading a storyMaking an instructional presentationProviding spoken feedback on writingHaving student explain a solutionGiving directions for a HyperSlides projectAnd much more!

How do I choose which online tools to use with my students when there are so many of them? Use the remaining time you have until summer break to continue experimenting with all the free and low-cost tools out there, as well as with the higher-priced ones that are making their products available to teachers and students at no-cost. Ultimately, decide on the ones you’ll keep in your “toolbox” for next year. “Mixing things up” for students can promote engagement, but doing it too much can create confusion with little additional benefit. In addition, I use Quzizz and ThingLink (to create interactive photographs) during my online class lessons, along with Google Slides.

Edublogs Publishes an Extensive Guide to Classroom Podcasting Podcasting has had a resurgence over the last couple of years. Part of that resurgence is due to the increase in easy-to-use tools for creating podcasts as well as an increase in platforms through which you can listen to podcasts. Anchor.fm is one of those easy-to-use podcast creation tools. I featured it in a video in my tip of the week in late February. The folks at Edublogs were kind enough to share it with their followers and include it in their new comprehensive guide to classroom podcasting. The Edublogger's Guide to Podcasting includes examples of student-created podcasts, examples of teacher-produced podcasts, directions for recording a podcast, and directions for publishing a podcast.
