Creating and Using Digital Resources

I have had so many teachers, administrators, and TpT authors ask me "How do you create digital resources?"

The thing is, it isn't something I can explain right then. It is a process. I decided to make a step by step video of how to create digital resources. If you are interested in doing this for your students, or just for creating products...I hope you will find this video helpful! Also, below you will find my wording for my instruction page on my products. Feel free to tweak this and add it to your products as well!

Product Instruction Wording:

With this link, you can access a google document with the product.

1. You will need a google account for you and for your students.
2. Open the document from the link below.
3. At the top (in the center) click OPEN IN GOOGLE SLIDES.
4. Click FILE, RENAME. This will be your MASTER COPY. (Name it *activity* MASTER COPY.)
5. Make ANOTHER COPY, this will be the one you share with your students. (Name it *activity* CLASS COPY)
6. Use the SHARE button in the top right corner (blue button) to get the shareable link to send to your students.
7. Share the document with your students. 
8. Once they open the file, the must make a copy (click FILE, RENAME) so they can edit their document and not your master copy. (Name it *activity**student name*)

--insert link here--

This can also be used whole group. In that case, just make a master copy and then another to edit in front of the entire class. 

  • Start with an original product
  • Turn all slides into PNGs to protect clipart, fonts, etc.
  • Turn into Google Document through Google Drive
  • Add Google Drive Link to the product
  • Include instruction page for the teacher/buyer 

In addition to creating Digital Resources, you may have purchased some of mine. Feel free to watch this video to help you use digital resources in your classroom! The following video is a step by step tutorial of how to use the resources in your classroom!

I hope all of this has been beneficial for you! I am not a pro at videoing but I felt that was the best way to show you how to do this process! Please let me know if you have any questions!

  1. Hillary,
    Thank you for your wonderful directions! Is it possible to use the png images to click "design" and "format background" and then "picture fill" so that the png image is then embedded and not movable?
    Again, thank you for your help.
