It looks as if SketchDeck may do wonders because you only need to draw whatever you want on your tablet and the tool will instantly turn it into a perfect slide. It is interesting that you can save your slides as a powerpoint presentation.

Another app with which to create slides. SketchDeck could be useful for those in engineering, IT etc where visually describing complex ideas makes them easier to comprehend - especially if the visual is schmick.

This is important advice for those who are into flipped class room teaching.

The tips given in the article will help in preparing PPTs. with Voice Over.

As I prepare for my presentation this week at the Florida Educational Technology Conference (FETC) on “Presenting with Pecha Kucha,” my colleagues have repeatedly asked me, “What is Pecha Kucha?” The short answer is it’s a great presentation style that gets students thinking and learning, not reading slides.

60 iPad Productivity Apps For Modern Teachers

60 iPad Productivity Apps For Modern Teachers | Web applications for effective teaching | Scoop.it

But technology may be able to help. This list, for example. We’ve offered ideas in the past to helpteachers save time, but those can only do so much. As can these apps, but every little bit helps, yes? Your workload, grade level, school climate, personal organizational habits–even beliefs about what a teacher is supposed to be and do all matter more than an app, but if you’re mobile and connected, you at least have a chance.

From RSS readers to social readers to to-do lists to calendar apps to note-taking and cloud-based document editing and more, this list has to have something that can improve the efficiency of what you do.

Assuming you have an iPad.

3 Powerful Web Tools to Create Whiteboard Animation Videos for Your Class ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

3 Powerful Web Tools to Create Whiteboard Animation Videos for Your Class ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Web applications for effective teaching | Scoop.it
Whiteboard animation videos are videos that draw themselves. They involve an animated use of images, shapes, characters, sounds and voice-overs to create a clip. This form of video production has been very popular recently and is widely used by some leading educational YouTube channels such as TED Ed and RSA Animate. Creating a whiteboard animation video is no longer a graphic designer's job. There are actually several web tools that allow you to easily put together an animated video with as simple tools as drag and drop. As a teacher, you can  use these animations to create and share tutorials,  presentations, step by tsp guides, and many more. Below are three  of my favourite tools I would recommend for you:
