If you are looking for a tool that can be integrated into any content area and at any grade level then you have hit pay dirt. Google Drawings is like a big digital sheet of paper. You can add text, images, shapes, and lines. The simplicity of it makes Google Drawings easy to use for students of any age.
Don’t let the simplicity fool you though. The possibilities for using Google Drawings for creation in the classroom are endless.
In a recent Twitter chat, moderated by Craig Klement, we went straight to the source and asked the experts for the creative and different ways they are using Google Drawings in the classroom. The #Ditchbook community responded with tons of amazing ideas and links to creative activities to use in any content area.
Try a digital activity choice board. Have students create a moveable model for science concepts. Make an infographic in history class. Or create a choose your own adventure in math.
ALL in Google Drawings!
And these are just a few of the ideas shared by educators in the #Ditchbook community on Twitter and Facebook.
Be sure to visit our Google Drawings Pinterest Board filled with even more ideas and resources! Also, check out this Wakelet collection to see the entire discussion from the recent chat.
