USING SLIDE MASTERS
Does This Sound Familiar?
You're close to finishing a resource for your classroom, or for TPT, and then you decide you want to rearrange/move elements, add/change the clip art, or change the font.
That may not be a huge deal if your pages are all designed differently, have no repeated elements, or there aren't many pages; but if you're creating task cards or multiple pages with the same elements over and over on all the slides, making those changes can be a pain!
Slide Masters Can Help!
All those little changes can be made more quickly and easily if you create your resources using slide masters (in PPT or in Google Slides). Slide masters make some parts of resource creation a bit faster - using them can definitely save you time! Before we look more closely at how they work, check out a few benefits of using the slide masters:
What Exactly Are Slide Masters?
According to the PPT description, “Slide Masters control the look of your entire presentation, including colors, fonts, backgrounds, effects, and just about everything else. You can insert a shape or a logo on a slide master, for example, and it will show up on all your slides automatically.”
So, slide masters are basically a way to control the elements on your slides.
