Linda Dougherty's curator insight, October 12, 2013 10:14 AM

Have started showing students during Google presentation tutorials how to outline their presentations like they always do with those bulleted lines on the slides.  Then take those sentences, change them into titles, and put one title on each slide. Select one image per slide. If needed, add URL links. Add the works cited for the image in tiny print at the bottom of the slide. Move those outlined bulleted points to the note section or toss into a document to print out for a group presenetation.

 

No more slides crowded with text and 4 images! No more students sleeping in the classroom while their classmates read from the Smartboard.

Susan Kay Daniels's curator insight, January 13, 9:30 AM

This is a PowerPoint presentation that would have sent my former employers into shock. They had no imagination whatsoever. However, Eugene Cheng clearly has wonderful artistic skills and knows how to present them. In addition, he clearly has a nice budget to work with. These kind of beautiful graphics don't come at low price. I thoroughly enjoyed glancing through this presentation and plan to use it as inspiration for future projects.

 

Warmly,

Susan Daniels

PowerPoint Christmas Cards | BrightCarbon

PowerPoint Christmas Cards | BrightCarbon | 21st Century Technology Integration | Scoop.it
Below you’ll find a video of each card and from within the preview you’ll be able to download the PowerPoint file for the card. As the cards have been created in PowerPoint, you can alter almost all of them to include your name (or company name) and then share with the world, hopefully spreading a little Christmas cheer in the process.

I agree Andrew. Tools are tools and it's all about how you use them that counts.
Karen Dietz's comment, July 24, 2013 1:23 PM
Good question Thomas! I think it is an ongoing dance between learning good storytelling and then learning the tools for maximum impact.
Louise Robinson-Lay's curator insight, August 2, 2013 7:44 AM

recentlyrue recently I had to get students to use Powerpoint as the Internet connection was too slow to have them all work at once on other online presentation tools. After laying down some ground rules about effective use they amazed us with their creative responses. It is not the tool. It is how you use it. And how teachers plan for it!

Post its were designed for temporarily attaching notes to documents and other surfaces but nowadays this concept has been spread among many different sectors, topics and interests.
