If you haven’t heard anything before, virtual classrooms, sometimes referred to as Bitmoji classrooms, have become an extremely popular way of delivering content to our students during distance learning pandemics. And to be honest, it’s pretty much my favorite now. If you’re a teacher like me and plan to use virtual classrooms for the next while, I thought I’d share a neat hack with you to give yours virtual classroom an immediate revision.
I’ve seen many people create their virtual classrooms by adding the classroom image, including the wall and floor, as a background image to the individual slide. This has the advantage that you do not move the background image unintentionally and reduce the layers on your slide. However, I prefer to add background images to the slide master, and I don’t use the “Add Background Image” option just because I want to edit my backgrounds, which you cannot do if you add them as the background image. Instead, I insert the images as layers into my layout within the master slide. One advantage of this is that I can crop images and adjust the color or brightness to get just the right tone, for example. I can also change and mix and match the floor or wall background. However, the best advantage when editing the foil master is as follows:
Create multiple classroom backgrounds
Using layouts in the slide master!
By editing the slide master and creating multiple layouts, you can instantly redesign the classroom with a click of the mouse. Here are 18 layouts that I created in the template:
Some of them have added boards or whiteboards, some have flag banners, and some are plain. Many of them have insulated wall backgrounds or floors, so you can change the color or replace them with other textures, for example.
Feel free to make a copy, design your classroom, and then redesign it by changing the layout!
