Make Learning Transparent with Background Removal Activities

Session Description

Have your students literally put themselves into their learning with this fun activity. Learn how students can take a photo of themselves, give it a transparent background with several tools, place themselves into other photos in Google Drawings and Slides, and use the drawing tools to add speech bubbles and more. This is a fun and personalized way for students to show their learning in any subject.
