Setting the timing in Google SLides

Here are some tips on setting your timing in google slides:

Go under FILE to "Publish to the Web"

Go down to "Automatically advance presentation to the next slide."

Here, it has the default of 3 seconds, so you can change it to every second, 2 seconds, 5 seconds, 10 seconds, 15 seconds, 30 seconds, or every minute.  Choose 30 seconds.

Now to actually present the slideshow, you must copy the Document link under "Get a link to the published document."

When you paste the link in your browser, you need to change the end of the URL where is says "30000" -- change it to "20000" to set it to 20 second advance. You can also paste that link (with the 20000 already fixed) in your blog and then just click on it on the day of your presentation!

Hope that helps!!

Disposition Forms


Please email your teacher with this link and ask them to fill out this form for you. While you can also use the paper form in your blue SL packet, or your blue FSEHD Admissions Folder, it is much better to use the electronic form so you don't have to keep track of an envelope.

Here is a sample email you could send to your teacher asking him/her to fill this out.

Dear XXX,

Thank you so much for hosting me in your classroom this semester.  I learned a lot and enjoyed the opportunity to work with xxxx.  

As a requirement for my education program at RIC, I am asking you to please submit this very short form assessing me and my dispositions.  

It is just 8 questions, and should take no more than 5-10 minutes to complete.  You will need the following information about me in order to fill it out:

Name:  Jane Doe
ID #: xxxxxxx
Program/Major:  History/Secondary (go look at the list to find your correct one - YDEV should select OTHER)

Thank you for submitting this on my behalf.  It needs to be posted no later than December 15, 2015 in order for me to complete my FNED 346 course, so please submit this as soon as possible. If you have any questions, please contact me at the numbers below.

Pecha Kucha Brainstorming Day

Here are the resources we are working with in class today:

Sample Pecha Kucha

Thoughts on what makes a PK Successful:

  • Effective use of pictures (relevant images, perhaps two per slide)
  • Personal information to give audience more context
  • Effective pacing (be careful about droning on when reading a script)
  • Use very limited words to punctuate your main point (over images, or in side)
  • Seek for a structure that starts with big idea (context), then gets specific, then offers summary
