12 Tools To Create Powerful Presentations Presentations have an important place in the corporate world. Whether presenting product releases or quarterly year reports, a nicely designed presentation captivates the audience. It increases the audience's interaction and interest. A well weaved narration of information in form of a presentation, can instill life to a plain and boring topic as well.

I was aware of (and used) Prezi - but I haven't heard of the others on this list. 

 

 

(From the article): Presentations have an important place in the corporate world. Whether presenting product releases or quarterly year reports, a nicely designed presentation captivates the audience. It increases the audience’s interaction and interest.  A well weaved narration of information in form of a presentation, can instill life to a plain and boring topic as well.

Apart from the corporate world, presentations are used in education as well. Teachers use presentations to deliver information that is successfully incorporated with videos and pictures, thus grabbing the attention of the students and enriching the learning process along the way.

While its hard to replace professional presentation designers, here is a list of some powerful tools that would help you to create interactive presentations in case of the absence of professional help.

"I just noticed that it has been a year since my last list of iPad apps for teaching music. Several new interesting music apps have seen the light since then and therefore I decided to create another more comprehensive list of some of the best iPad apps for teaching music to give music teachers more options to choose from."

Paragráfe, citação, referência bibliográfica não são plágio!

There's no need to plagiarism... just quote properly!

Sandra Carswell's curator insight, July 24, 2013 4:39 PM

Yes, simple to us, but to our kids? Probably not. Nice to have a visual for them to see just when they need to cite and add a bibliography.

Instructor’s Challenge: Moving Student beyond Opinions to Critical Thinking | Faculty Focus

Instructor’s Challenge: Moving Student beyond Opinions to Critical Thinking | Faculty Focus | Education | Scoop.it
Critical thinking is defined as a reflective and reasonable thought process embodying depth, accuracy, and astute judgment to determine the merit of a decision, an object, or a theory (Alwehaibi, 2012). Creative thinking involves analysis, evaluation, and a synthesizing of facts, ideas, opinions, and theories. Possessing the capacity to logically and creatively exercise in-depth judgment and reflection to work effectively in the realm of complex ideas exemplifies a critical thinker (Carmichael & Farrell, 2012).

I had a banner on my classroom wall for years. It read: "Learn how to think!"


In the conservative backwaters of Nevada this was considered a radical approach.  I even had a parent rant at me, "How dare you teach my child to challenge authority!"  


Still I persisted and can now smile knowing I've helped some of my students on the road to critical thinking.   


Is critical thinking a subversive activity in your school?  If so, be subversive!

Good reading for anyone who works with students.

5 Smart Ways To Use Digital Images In The Classroom - TeachThought

5 Smart Ways To Use Digital Images In The Classroom - TeachThought | Education | Scoop.it

"It is important for students to be able to use images as a tool to advance their own knowledge and achievement. In this capacity, students are able to think abstractly about complex ideas and information, transforming the curriculum into more of a narrative they can absorb through creative imagery. There are several ways teachers can use images to extract the inherent creativity from their students, while simultaneously promoting deep thought, and honing their attention to detail.

Using Images as Research Prompts to Teach Google Search Strategies

Using Images as Research Prompts to Teach Google Search Strategies | Education | Scoop.it

"Over the last month I've shown the picture that you see to the left during a number of presentations and workshops. I've used the picture to model using pictures to spark students' minds at the beginning of lessons on search strategies. This is a strategy that I've developed by borrowing ideas from Daniel Russell's Search ReSearch activities and Dan Meyer's strategy of using videos and pictures to prompt students to ask math questions."

Richard Byrne shares how he uses images to help students (and teachers) learn search strategies. He suggests using Creative Common-licensed images from Flickr or Fotopedia as many are tagged with locations. He also shares some of the questions that often come up with this picture.

Using images to teach search strategies may help those students whom are more visual learners.

Kimberly House's curator insight, July 28, 2013 9:39 AM

Great idea for getting curiousity going and engaging students in what can be a dry topic: search strategies!

So many people are on Pinterest, that it only makes since that teachers and librarians try to use these resources. This article talks about how to use Pinterest to organize information, so that is can easily be found by students, and since it is through a site most teens use, its an engaging tool.
