10 more PowerPoint tips for teachers

10 more PowerPoint tips for teachers | Keeping up with Ed Tech | Scoop.it
Every teacher has their own opinion about the effectiveness of using PowerPoint in the classroom. My opinion has always been that PowerPoint is a tool, a tool with features and functions that I need to learn.

And over the years, I have developed my own style and I stumbled across some features and functions that I wished someone had told me about long before now.

So, here I am, listing them in no particular order. I have included features that I have personally found useful when designing lessons and PowerPoint. Even though I have called these tips for teachers, they can be used by anyone who use PowerPoint on a regular basis.
