Class Discussion with Mote

Increasing Accessibility with Audio

Classroom discussions are a staple of the student experience across grade levels and content areas in classrooms across the world. Yet, for many students classroom discussions can pose a significant challenge. Whether students need time to process the ideas being shared or they find it challenging to participate in a face to face environment, Mote can be used to make discussions accessible to all students. With Mote in Google Slides, educators can create a digital space where students can participate in class discussion via asynchronous audio, beyond the confines of the physical classroom. Whether this strategy is used as the primary method of facilitating discussion, or as an extension of the face to face experience, Mote and Google Slides can remove barriers to student participation in class discussion! Added bonus…the entire discussion is archived. Both the teacher and students can return to the discussion to revisit ideas shared with Mote.

Check out the entire video walk-through below to learn how to transform Google Slides into an audio discussion environment.
