091. Google Slides: The What, Why, and How for Teachers
One of the most popular digital tools that teachers use is PowerPoint. This software has taken the education field by storm due to its versatility and ability to make reactive and engaging activities for kids. But what if we told you that there was another tool that would make your life even easier than PowerPoint.
