Use the “Vanishing Spell” in PowerPoint

Use the “Vanishing Spell” in PowerPoint | Technology | Scoop.it

...Speaking of the spell, do you remember the scene when Harry wished he knew a good Vanishing Spell to escape his fan Colin’s photograph-clicking spree? Or the time when Bill Weasley used this incantation to make a stack of scrolls disappear while cleaning up after a meeting of the Order of the Phoenix during Harry's first night at number twelve, Grimmauld Place?

Looks like a great tool - I hope there is an Android version of it. 

LearningDevelopment@ForthValleyCollege's curator insight, June 18, 2013 10:35 AM

Studying is not the intended function of this application, however, by uploading lecture slides as images, or taking pictures of the board during class, then uploading these images to Pixntell, would allow you to create your very own custom Flashcards. By recording your own audio notes to accompany the images, you could create short movies that could act as bitesize recap tools to support your revision, or prompts for studying, or a visual plan for your coursework.
