Linda Dougherty's curator insight, October 12, 2013 10:14 AM

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.

Susan Daniels's curator insight, January 13, 2014 9:30 AM

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.

 

Warmly,

Susan Daniels

Games work.  The great key to teaching is student motivation. Most students will engage when it comes to game based education. That's where the learning takes place.

Why Anti-PowerPoint Arguments Are Invalid

Why Anti-PowerPoint Arguments Are Invalid | Edtech for Schools | Scoop.it
Some people are still vehemently anti-PowerPoint. This conversation has got old. Here, once and for all, m62 refutes the anti-PowerPoint arguments.
What’s important to remember though is that the fact that PowerPoint isn’t suitable for some presentations doesn’t mean that it is unsuitable for all presentations. When used well, and in an appropriate setting, PowerPoint provides a genuinely effective platform that enables presenters to communicate their messages effectively.
