Once you choose your new template, how about finding pictures that already are student safe and have an automatic citation with every download? The images are Creative Commons licensed for school use. Yes! You will feel like this:

  1. I have not been able to figure out how to find the Slide Carnival images, and as a school librarian, I am really interested in the automatic citations you mention. Can you help?

    • Slide Carnival provides templates that can be used in Google Slides. Just open the slides you like and click file, save a copy. Now you will have a version in which you may edit. The automatic citations for images is done by clicking tools, research, and images. Search for the image you want and drag in into place. It will automatically create a citation for you. Hope this helps!

      • Too bad. It’s not a citation, just the source URL, and it is only visible when the image is selected. It would not show during a presentation and doesn’t model proper format for my audience. One day…

  2. Looks like you are right. Google Docs has the option to choose APA or MLA format in the tool research section. At least you can filter by free to use to help narrow the image choice!
