    Today’s guest is Mr. G, who will be talking to us about how to create a Choose your own Adventure slide deck or form.

    Tell us a bit about yourself, who you are, what you do.

    I have a podcast called ACEd Tech.

    I recently graduated from the Google Innovator Academy #VIA20

    I’m just generally passionate about EdTech

    (If you want to change any of these questions, go ahead. Please add any questions you would like us to ask.) Example: Ask me about …..my garden…..


    How are you doing? What would you like to chat about today?

    There are ways to create a choose-your-own-adventure games using Google Slides or Google Forms

    You created choose your own adventure with google forms tell us about that.

    At first, breakout edu was popular. Then, digital breakouts were created. On Google Forms, a breakout which may include a “password” may not work because it can be easily hacked. Instead, a choose-your-own-adventure would make it better.

    What prompted you to create this?

    Based on my Google Innovator project, I tried to create a game on Google Forms.

    How does it work?

    In Google Forms…

    In Google Slides ...

    How can others get involved in this?

    Here’s a link to one I made using forms: https://forms.gle/Q4kJLHLQR1iGWPcKA

    With Google Slides and Google Forms it will take practice and patience.

    Here’s a link to my student using Google Slides https://preview.tinyurl.com/tyca21
