Google “Spark”: I dabble and played for years, but I went all in about 3 years ago when I drove 2 hours to do a training/presentation for a school and my stomach dropped when I realized I saved my PowerPoint presentation on my work desktop computer, not on my laptop, and there was no way to access it. NEVER AGAIN! Started learning and didn't look back.

Debbie -- When students are actively using pages that the teacher creates (like matching games, etc.), they are not in presentation mode, correct? So, in this case, what is the purpose of presentation mode? In other words, why did you choose Slides for the activity? Not trying to be rude. Just don't understand. Please explain.
