If you need assistance on how to edit and/or utilize Digital Interactive Notebooks in Google Slides for your classroom, you have come to the right place! In these videos, I will be referencing the Editable Digital Interactive Notebook Templates in this post. This digital Google Slides resource provides editable Interactive Notebook Templates that you can create for your students. It is designed to be used for ALL grade levels and subjects. It contains Page Tabs, Table of Contents Template, Vocabulary Template, Timeline Template, Graphic Organizers, and more!
I created the videos below to address some of my most frequently asked questions.
1. How to Use / Edit the Clickable Tabs & Table of Contents
The tabs in the interactive notebook are a helpful tool for labeling slides and for quickly jumping to a slide in the notebook. Please note that the tabs are not designed to be used in presentation mode.
2. How to Change Backgrounds for Each Slide
You can always change out the background if you’d like something a little different! Here’s a quick way to do that.
3. How to Use Timeline Page and the Grouping Tool
Do you know how to group items together in Google Slides? This trick is so useful when you have movable pieces in your interactive notebook!
