This is pretty much an ad for emaze, but it's good to know what is available commercially in terms of presentations.

8 Tips for the Care & Feeding of the Reluctant Tech User | The Daring Librarian

8 Tips for the Care & Feeding of the Reluctant Tech User | The Daring Librarian | Educating in a digital world | Scoop.it

The Daring Librarian provides a great post on how to assist the "reluctant tech learner." A key point she makes is the need to have them learn "how to do something with a project about which they're personally passionate."

To gather this information she went out to her Personal Learning Network and asked for suggestions. The post includes 8 tips (which includes the one above) as well as:

* Show and Tell - providing a "digital petting zoo"

* Providing lots of praise 

* Small Steps (as in mini session)

It will probably come as no surprise that many of the techniques suggested also work in the classroom.

5 Creative Uses Of PowerPoint Presentations You Haven’t Explored Yet

5 Creative Uses Of PowerPoint Presentations You Haven’t Explored Yet | Educating in a digital world | Scoop.it

Death by PowerPoint is a popular term. It’s unfair that PowerPoint gets the stick as there are more than a few presentation tools around. As anyone who has taken the pains to make a memorable PowerPoint presentation will tell you – the secret of the steak is in the sizzle. The sizzle also comes and stops at creativity. If you have creativity by your side, you can use PowerPoint as your canvas.

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...

PPT is here to stay. We should learn all of its features and be imaginative in how we use it.
