Using Slide for Class Critiques

Classroom discussions and sharing project progress was a frequent and natural part of my classroom. Students could share their work, ask questions, get (and give) feedback from others, and learn from each other. It was a part of what made our studio a collaborative vs competitive environment. Then came remote learning... In a 1:1 iPad environment it was easy to deliver the work and support students with tutorials yet the community was missing. Although there are many platforms to communicate, Google Slide shares became the answer. For each project, I would create a slide deck with student names and each day they would post their progress. On certain days we would begin class by looking and giving feedback to others. At any point students could pose questions to their peers and see what others were working on. Google Slides bridged the gap of class discussions, it also gave voice to some of our quieter students. The Slide shares became a vibrant piece of our routine and now back in the classroom, Slide shares still used.

• Create Slide deck

• Invite Students

• Start the conversation.

The students will do the rest.

I love how you describe the way this change in practice that was a necessity during remote learning is still providing benefits now that you've returned to in-person learning. It sounds like this was a simple but powerful shift in how students were able to document and talk about their progress. Thanks for sharing, Laurie!
