I am trying out Powtoon.  Not very good at it yet, but here is a presentation I made for my class to start off the term.

You will need Flash Player for this.

Die weltweit größte Community zum Teilen von PowerPoint-, OpenOffice- oder Keynote-Präsentationen sowie PDF-Dateien und Infografiken.
Alison Rostetter's insight:

Probably many scoopit fans know this site, but I stumbled on it while looking for an interesting introduction to Staff Motivation - the next unit in my course book (C1).  There are loads of presentations and I have embedded my choices in a class wiki so I can easily find it and my students can watch it again if they want to.    Great site to browse and the advantage of slides is, that unlike a movie you can stop instantly and discuss without losing the thread as you would in a film.

P is for Pecha Kucha

P is for Pecha Kucha | Articles re. education | Scoop.it
What is PechaKucha 20×20? PechaKucha 20×20 is a simple presentation format where you show 20 images, each for 20 seconds. The images advance automatically and you talk along to the images...
Alison Rostetter's insight:

you have to pronounce it first... and then give it to students as a presentation format.  I have subsequently (due to lack of time) put some photos from the very nice site PIXABAY onto a PowerPoint, which I show to the class, and they get 20 seconds to tell a speaking partner anything that the pictures evoke.  Memories, anecdotes...  As tourism students my pictures are mainly of destinations - including Alpine scenes, Jordan, Iceland, a car in winter... also because my S's just got back from, among other places, Jordan and Iceland.

Prezi - The Zooming Presentation Editor

Prezi - The Zooming Presentation Editor | Articles re. education | Scoop.it

Prezi is a cloud-based presentation software that opens up a new world between whiteboards and slides. The zoomable canvas makes it fun to explore ideas and the connections between them.  My students did presentations recenlty and 2 or 3 of them used PREZI.  It is a really impressive way of doing a presentation, much more interesting than old Power Point.  I intend to get in some practice with this and do some of my own.
