- TIP OF THE WEB - STANDARD 2: design and develop digital age learning experiences and assessments
Teachers have all been there. In the middle of a presentation or lecture hands go up. When this happens, of course I want to clarify anything that may not have been clear for the audience, but I also sometimes think questions are best answered at the end.
As an audience member, I can understand wanting to ask a question of the presenter in the middle of a presentation so I don’t forget what I wanted to clarify.
Google Slides recently updated to allow questions.
With the Q&A feature enabled, the audience can now go to a link and write in questions they have. No more waiting. No more interrupting.
After the audience accesses the URL, they simply type in their questions. The list of questions then appears in the presenter’s window.
How do I enable the Q&A feature?
1. Click the triangle next to the present button
2. In the popup window, click start new
3. The audience will see a URL at the top of your presentation which they put into a new browser tab
4. The audience members type in their questions (anonymously or not)
5. The presenter can see questions by looking at the speaker notes
