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.

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.

While beautiful Powerpoint may seem like an oxymoron  this slideshow proves it is possible.

Electric Slide is the easiest way to wirelessly present PowerPoint slides, Office documents, PDFs and videos with your iPhone or iPad.

Your device is a remote control that works anywhere with any screen. Since viewers just need your simple URL to follow along, setup is a cinch.

You can also connect your device directly to a TV or projector via HDMI or VGA.

This has to be one of the coolest apps for business people everywhere. Presentations might even become popular and less boring again.

the pricing for more than one co-user I need to think about
Karen Dietz's comment, March 1, 2013 12:57 PM
I agree Jacq! For some, the pricing won't be an issue. For sole proprietors, it could be something to carefully consider.

Absolutely cool. Now, how to make it work in a classroom with a diverse student population who perhaps cannot afford iThings...and the classroom PCs are not wireless...hmmm...
