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

5 Creative Uses Of PowerPoint Presentations You Haven’t Explored Yet | New learning | 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...

Sandra Carswell's curator insight, November 5, 2013 3:08 PM

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

This is a great way for creating screencasts, tutorials, and guides to help students learn better. Visual explanations tend to increase students comprehension much more than the textual ones. Today, I have handpicked for you three good apps to help you turn your iPad into an interactive whiteboard. Check them out below :"

How Digital Writing Is Making Kids Smarter

How Digital Writing Is Making Kids Smarter | New learning | Scoop.it

Writing used to be strictly an in-school activity. Now, kids do 40 percent of their writing outside of school. Called “life writing,” young adults’ social writing spans texts, tweets, social media, and blogs -- and all of it’s making kids more literate.

BI Media Specialists's curator insight, November 1, 2013 4:28 PM

I can't believe kids are doing more than 40% of their writing outside of school. "Life writing" may make grammar teachers cringe, but at least students are engaging with others and sharing ideas in this format.

Catherine Byrd Bushby's curator insight, June 21, 10:13 PM

That's why we need to bring social writing into school.

Best iPad App of the Week: Terminology 3 - iPad Insight

Best iPad App of the Week: Terminology 3 - iPad Insight | New learning | Scoop.it

"This week’s pick is Terminology 3– an old favorite in its second incarnation on the App Store, after a recent complete re-write for iOS 7.

Terminology’s elevator pitch in the App Store is that it’s ‘a browser for the English language – part dictionary/thesaurus and part research tool’. And it has always lived up to that description very nicely. It’s been my favorite dictionary and thesaurus tool for years and I’m happy to say it serves a similar purpose for my 10 year old daughter as well."
