Presentation Design 101

Presentation Design 101 | Serious Play | Scoop.it
All you need to know to get started creating your own fantastic presentations!

If you’ve ever had to present to a group of people, you know how intimidating it can be. You know things can go wrong. Your voice can give out, your laptop can fail, and your left leg can shake uncontrollably.

These things can just… happen. But what shouldn’t happen is this...

Excellent resource with lots and lots of illustrations about presentation design. Beautiful fonts, images, layouts + templates for your own presentations.

Beth Dichter's curator insight, July 2, 2014 7:49 PM

Yesterday I posted the top choices from the American Association of School LIbrarians (AASL) on the best apps for 2014. Today they listed the top websites in the following categories:

* Media Sharing

* Digital Stories

* Manage & Organize

* Social Networking & Communication

* Content Resources

* Curriculum Collaboration

As you review the websites you will find one or more standards that are addressed by the websites.

Although I know many of the websites, there are some that are new to me that I look forward to exploring. Below are several that I have used and really like, or are ones I have checked out and will be using in the future.

Are you looking for new tools and want ideas on how to use them as well as examples and links to learn more about the tool. Check out Remix-t, a site from the University of Notre Dame, that is chock full of great ideas and resources. Although this site is geared to college teachers the resources and examples will provide you with great ideas and you will be able to modify them for your classroom. You will find in under Content Resources.

Mixed Ink is a new site to me. It allows you to create a group of students who will write together. They may comment and evaluate the submissions and each students' writing will show up in a different color. This looks like  a great site, esp. for schools that are not using Google apps.

There are many more that I will be exploring. Do you have a favorite website? Share them in the comment section and let us know why it is a favorite of yours.
