Any of my blogger friends feel my pain when trying to keep your sidebar updated with resources/posts that involve images and links? I sure do! It’s such a pain dealing with coding, uploading images to Photobucket, or adding links to inLinkz.
Recently I discovered the magic of embedding Google Slides to my class website. All I have to do is make changes to my Google Slide docs in my Gmail Drive account, and my website is automatically updated. That includes the weekly newsletter, daily homework, resources, calendar, everything.
I have become addicted to it lately and just the other day it occurred to me that I can use this same strategy to create a sidebar slideshow with my latest resources that is ridiculously easy to update. If this is something that interests you, I have a video tutorial right here for you. If you find it useful, please let me know! I’d love to see your “smart” sidebar slideshow!
