Use the “Vanishing Spell” in PowerPoint | Web 2.0 for Education | 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?

Use PowerPoint Slide Layouts to make presentations memorable

Use PowerPoint Slide Layouts to make presentations memorable | Web 2.0 for Education | Scoop.it

When all your slides look alike, your entire message can be blurred. At the end of your presentation, you want your audience to remember your main points most, and if they remember some of the details, that's a plus. By making key slides distinctive, you can help people follow and retain the content in your presentation. I use PowerPoint slides in some of my Web 2.0 tools by saving them as .jpegs so I can add them like pictures, for example, in Animotos.

Remember the comics of our childhood? What would they be without speech bubbles? In comics, words were calls to action and speech bubbles (or speech balloons)  put them so well. You never thought they obstructed the illustrations in any way.
