Linda Dougherty's curator insight, October 12, 2013 10:14 AM

Have started showing students during Google presentation tutorials how to outline their presentations like they always do with those bulleted lines on the slides.  Then take those sentences, change them into titles, and put one title on each slide. Select one image per slide. If needed, add URL links. Add the works cited for the image in tiny print at the bottom of the slide. Move those outlined bulleted points to the note section or toss into a document to print out for a group presenetation.

 

No more slides crowded with text and 4 images! No more students sleeping in the classroom while their classmates read from the Smartboard.

Susan Daniels's curator insight, January 13, 2014 9:30 AM

This is a PowerPoint presentation that would have sent my former employers into shock. They had no imagination whatsoever. However, Eugene Cheng clearly has wonderful artistic skills and knows how to present them. In addition, he clearly has a nice budget to work with. These kind of beautiful graphics don't come at low price. I thoroughly enjoyed glancing through this presentation and plan to use it as inspiration for future projects.

 

Warmly,

Susan Daniels

While beautiful Powerpoint may seem like an oxymoron  this slideshow proves it is possible.

Photos and video clips capturing bits of the excursion can be enjoyed for years to come, and even amateur photographers can document their travels by photos.
Jodi Lynn's insight:

I think taking pictures during trips is important, but I think it's equally important to remember to put the camera down at times too. Take in the moment. Smell the air, look deeply at your surroundings, listen to what's going on around you and put that moment into your memory.
