How to Turn Your Bullet Points Into Visually-Engaging Elements

How to Turn Your Bullet Points Into Visually-Engaging Elements | Visual Design and Presentation in Higher Edcuation | Scoop.it

40 Ways to Screw Up a PowerPoint Slide

40 Ways to Screw Up a PowerPoint Slide | Visual Design and Presentation in Higher Edcuation | Scoop.it
Bad PowerPoint design may be just as detrimental to your presentation as smelling like a horse. When you have poorly designed slides, a few things happen: your professionalism is questioned (because you essentially tell the people looking at your PowerPoint that you don't know how to create professional work); your audience members get distracted as they toggle between looking at your bad design and listen to what you're actually saying (and, in the end, they don't really ingest either); and you

Even though Adobe is not a free software, their product InDesign lets you stand out by creating stunning presentations. Watch the tutorial that will give you an insight into the creative process.

InDesign is aimed at academics but in my opinion it can successfully be used in general education as well.

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...
