Using Cool Fonts in Google Classroom and Desmos

So I recently realized you can use cool fonts from CoolFont.org in Desmos and the awesome Amy Zimmer @zimmerdiamonds asked if I’d do a demo. So I made a video and figured I’d also make a blog post about it!

I am pretty sure I found this from Tony Vincent @tonyvincent after hearing about him from the Shake Up Learning Podcast. He has a post about Google Classroom tips that include changing fonts. Somehow I got from there to CoolFont.org.

I made a video, which was also my first screencast demo and first upload to YouTube!  Here it is:

I don’t really bother too much with fonts, except that I like to have different fonts that make the learner’s attention really see certain words. Here are some examples:

***Disclaimer: I have been alerted to some fonts not showing up on certain devices, so please be careful and check out your work on different devices first before you need learners to see them!!!

Definitely the least important part of a Desmos Activity, but it’s fun!

Les capture vidéos de l’écran sont un peu embarrassants parce que ma voix semble étrange.
