How to Use Google Slides for Simple Classroom Podcast Projects

In preparation for a workshop that my colleagues and I are developing, I've been doing some research on ways that teachers have been working podcast creation into their classrooms. I found this simple Google Slides template and explainer video by Greg Kulowiec and made a few adaptations. Click here to make a copy. 

Here's the Iorad step-by-step I created to simplify how to add images, sound and show notes: 


1. The first step is to open a Google Slide Podcasting Template in Google Slides.
