Digital resources in this day and age are a necessity.


With many students learning virtually due to the pandemic, TPT resources that don’t have the flexibility to be for both face-to-face and distance learning may end up hurting, rather than helping your sales.


What are you to do when all you have in your TPT store are printable resources? How can you convert these to digital without having to start completely from scratch? 


In today’s video tutorial, I give you steps on how to take a printable resource you have already created and convert it to a digital version. In this example I teach you how to convert a resource created in Powerpoint to Google Slides.
