When Ed Packer, the brain behind the "Choose Your Own Adventure" story format, first imagined this form of storytelling, he likely didn't consider that this type of storytelling might ultimately make its way onto the digital stage. In "Choose Your Own Stories," a reader becomes the star of the show by making predictions and choosing new pathways that determine the story's outcome. Join Dawn Berkeley as she explains how this neat approach to storytelling can be further brought to life with Google Slides. She will explain how teachers or students can create stories that pose a series of challenges, as well as a selection of possibilities to potentially address each challenge. She will walk through the process of using Google Slides for collaborative story writing. Come discover a fun, engaging way to enhance your students' creativity, reading, and writing skills, while teaching digital skills at the same time.

I like the creativeness of the student-centered setting. I feel the presentation was informative. However, I guess because of time, it seemed rushed unlike other presentations that I have seen. This led to me constantly stopping and rewinding.
This is something I feel students could really enjoy. It reminds me of playing Oregon Trail.

I believe that even my third graders can use this because I do teach them to make a google slideshow for their book reports and I further see how using this to set up a cause and effect slide story path. Students could make one from a story or book that we are reading to create different endings. Include the original book path while also showing the change if the character had chosen a different response or path.
