I've used many of Ken's presentation design tips in my own presentations over the last year and I think they've helped make my slides better. Recently, Ken shared with me a slidedeck that he made about the use of visuals in storytelling. He made the presentation on Haiku Deck and you can view it here or view it below. "

To date, Fleming has laid out very specific skill sets for which teachers at her school can earn badges. They include becoming proficient in WeVideo, an online video editor, ThingLink, a graphics generator, and AnswerGarden, a polling tool, along with Wordle, a word cloud program, and QR Code Generator. Fleming now adds a new badge “each week or so,” she says, and she thinks carefully about what skills they will cover. She wants to be sure that the apps she recommends teachers learn will also be useful to students.
