In praise of PowerPoint

In praise of PowerPoint | Digital Presentations in Education | Scoop.it

Philip Moriarty stands up for the much-maligned presentation tool.

"Both students and academics regularly bemoan “death by PowerPoint”, as a glance at Times Higher Education’s archives will show. But PowerPoint is a presentational tool. Nothing more, nothing less. If students are finding it difficult to engage with the material that we’re discussing and explaining, then it’s rather a cop-out to blame that on the technology."

Baiba Svenca's insight:

A great article discussing the true reasons why PowerPoint has fallen from grace with loads of people.

I have never praised Powerpoint, and i dont think I will in the future. But this guy has a very good point in that bad lectures were bad also before powerpint, and only bad craftsmen that blaime the tools.

How to Group in PowerPoint

How to Group in PowerPoint | Digital Presentations in Education | Scoop.it

Grouping allows you to make two or more PowerPoint objects into a single ‘grouped’ object that you can more easily move around and manage on your slide.

Baiba Svenca's insight:

Those who have tried using lots of objects (images, clipart, graphics) in their PowerPoint presentations and discovered they all seemed scattered around, may not have known the "art" of grouping the objects so that they can't move.

A valuable lesson for presentation makers by Nuts & Bolts Speed Training gurus.
