“10 Google Slides activities to add awesome to classes” provides several ideas for activities that can easily be adapted into a variety of grade levels or content areas.  Google Slides is similar to PowerPoint, but it is much easier to collaborate on projects because multiple people can be working on the presentation at the same time.

“10 ways YouTube can engage your classes now”  provides some unique ideas on how to incorporate YouTube into lesson beyond simply pulling up and watching a video.  YouTube videos are also the only videos that Google Slides enables to be uploaded directly into a presentation.

“The Google Classroom Quick-Start Guide + tips and tricks!”  and “12 great ways to start using Google Classroom now” provide an overview of Google Classroom from creating a class to ways it can be used with students.  This is a great way to digitally deliver assignments to students.
