5. Make a Slides Presentation

Playback Speed:

In this video, you will work with your group to create a presentation in Google Slides.

It will share information about your digital wellbeing and tell stories about device use.

This presentation will help people at your school think about digital health and the importance of balancing digital activities with other activities.

This lesson uses Google Slides, but you could apply these skills and concepts in any presentation application, or even on a piece of paper.

For this lesson, each group member will sit at their own computer.

You will be able to see what your classmates add to the slideshow, and they will see what you type.

To start, have one group member: Create a new presentation in Google Slides, Rename it, And share it with the other group members.

At your own computer, find and open the shared presentation.

Work with your group to select a theme for your slideshow.

A theme sets the same fonts and layouts across all your slides.

Next, add a title to your first slide.

Then add another slide to your presentation to list guidelines for digital wellbeing.

Review your project notes to decide: What your classmates should know about digital wellbeing, What you want adults to know, And how teachers can contribute to digital wellbeing.

Your teacher might also assign you a specific topic for your first slide, such as when to avoid using your phone or tablet, or how to add activities without technology to your day.

Add a title to your guidelines slide.

Then type your guidelines.

These might come from your project planning document for this lesson or a previous project.

Collaborate with your group to add the guidelines that are most important to your group or class.

Next, have each group member or classroom group add a slide to share a personal story or tip about technology.

You might tell a story about a time when a device interrupted your day, or you might share things that make you feel good and bad when you’re using a screen.

Use different slide layouts to vary how you share information and images.

Add a title to each slide.

Once each member or classroom group has added a slide, present your slideshow to your class.

You can also share your presentation by: downloading it to a shared computer, so that others can watch it, Creating a link to email or share in classroom materials, or posting it on a class website.

Your guidelines and stories will help your whole class and school work together to achieve healthier digital habits.

Now, it’s your turn: Create, rename, and share a new presentation in Google Slides, Add a theme and complete your title slide, Add a slide with digital guidelines, Create a slide for each student or group to tell a story or share likes and dislikes about device use, And share your presentation in the classroom or online.
