5 Creative Uses Of PowerPoint Presentations You Haven’t Explored Yet

5 Creative Uses Of PowerPoint Presentations You Haven’t Explored Yet | ancient history | Scoop.it

Death by PowerPoint is a popular term. It’s unfair that PowerPoint gets the stick as there are more than a few presentation tools around. As anyone who has taken the pains to make a memorable PowerPoint presentation will tell you – the secret of the steak is in the sizzle. The sizzle also comes and stops at creativity. If you have creativity by your side, you can use PowerPoint as your canvas.

5 Creative Uses Of PowerPoint Presentations 

Karen Ford's curator insight, November 4, 2013 12:53 PM

I think "death by PowerPoint" is used so often because so many users have not "taken the pains to make a memorable..." presentation and the concept of creativity might not have even been considered. Not totally sure what the answer is, but I do believe that if more individuals could have their eyes opened to the potential that PowerPoint has, we might be able to get passed the "death" issue. That means we have to get the great ideas to the teachers and  their students... not just telling them, but perhaps showing them...

PPT is here to stay. We should learn all of its features and be imaginative in how we use it.

Remove Any Image Background With Clipping Magic

Remove Any Image Background With Clipping Magic | ancient history | Scoop.it
Clipping Magic is a free web app for quickly and easily removing image backgrounds.

When using images for PowerPoint presentations, blog posts and other projects, one may require removing their background so that they may blend in with the colors of your presentation slide, blog or canvas.  However, removing a background image isn’t easy and being a PRO at PhotoShop is not possible for everyone.

Nothing can replace the physical presence of a teacher. But with so much technology available these days, some teachers and professors are choosing a different way to structure their classes by flipping them.


Barbara Macfarlan's curator insight, September 6, 2013 6:28 PM
There's always something new to learn for all of us and these tools can make this easier for teachers and students alike. Flipping the classroom is not new anymore so it could be time for the students to start generating the content and learning for the class. These iPad apps can make it easier to empower students to take an active roll in their learning. Create a class YouTube channel where they can upload and publish their presentations so that the content they create can be shared and reviewed by their peers.

These kind of tips are helpful in every way possible especially when someone is nervous. Knowing that we need to just breathe is an important thing. These skills can allow us to get better in our presentations.
