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

5 Creative Uses Of PowerPoint Presentations You Haven’t Explored Yet | Into the Driver's Seat | 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 9:53 AM

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...

My 5 Best Social Media Tips For Teachers - Edudemic

My 5 Best Social Media Tips For Teachers - Edudemic | Into the Driver's Seat | Scoop.it

posted by Jeff Dunn

 

"Here in the U.S., it’s nearly time to head back into the classroom and to once again mold young minds. Teachers are organizing their thoughts, figuring out what they learned at all the summer conferences like ISTE, and putting together lessons that will set the world on fire. That’s the idea at least. Students are coming to grips with the fact that their long vacation is winding down and making sure all their friends and family members know that their life is quite difficult.

 

"And both teachers and students are doing all of this on social media.

 

"That’s why I thought it might be useful to run down my five best social media tips for teachers (I’m working on the student version and will publish that shortly as well) who are looking to take advantage of social media. Some of these might seem basic while others might be new to you. No matter what, be sure to read through each tip carefully and feel free to share it with colleagues if you think it’ll help them be a better social media user."
