10 Most Common Rookie Presentation Mistakes
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
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.
During a PowerPoint presentation you may be tempted to apply some changes to the presentation slides. Even if you can close the slideshow and go directly to the slide where...

"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."
“I have some photos (JPEG files) and wish to add "speech bubbles". Do you know of a program or any online app that will do this? Many thanks!”

Powerpoint tips, which are more than tips on the iceberg
by Lisa Nielsen
"Chatting with friends, playing games, cheating, cruising YouTube. These are just some of the behaviors educators fear will become a reality in technology-rich classrooms...unless they incorporate updated classroom management practices. Innovative educators use techniques that keep students’ attention despite the irresistible draw of the Internet. Simple practices transform their devices into tools of engagement rather than distraction.

Learning to learn remains a powerful and necessary skill in every field of activity. In addition to this skill, imagine that your learning can be accelerated, your mind challenged and your efficiency improved.
One of the most important roles of presentations is for you to practice your creativity and understanding on a specific topic or subject. When you are able to present your own perspective on a specific matter, your learning experience becomes extremely powerful. You become the owner of that information, gaining ownership over the delivered content. As you get yourself ready to make your knowledge known remember to:...
