Here are just a few ideas to get you started on ways to use AutoDraw in the classroom:
- business/personal logo (can be uploaded to Google Draw)
- images for presentations (Slides)
- symbols for hyperlinks in Docs, Slides, and Sites
- modeling ideas for other students
- visualizing processes
- thinking maps
- connotative, associative thinking skills
- inspiration for their own AI projects
