10 Online Alternatives to PowerPoint for Creating Great Presentations

10 Online Alternatives to PowerPoint for Creating Great Presentations | eLearning | Scoop.it

There are lots of online alternatives which let you create great looking presentations on any device. Storing them in the cloud means you can work on them wherever you are as well as easily share with others and embed into other websites. They may not have the flashy animations of PowerPoint, but that’s not a bad thing!

Catherine Coghlan's insight:

I have used a variety of these over the years...but I still see Powerpoint used by students even if given a choice of how to present.  Teachers stay safe with Powerpoint, and as students do not see these applications modelled, don't feel the need to extend themselves either.

Understanding your digital footprint - new opportunities!

Understanding your digital footprint - new opportunities! | eLearning | Scoop.it

Just like a tattoo, your digital reputation is an expression of yourself. It is formed and added to by you and others over time. Teaching students to manage their digital footprint really starts with the adults. Teachers can’t teach this effectively if they, themselves have not managed their own digital footprint. It is also important not to confuse managing a digital footprint with being hidden or private. Branding our identities has become more and more important in the digital age and if students and teachers aren’t actively managing their digital footprint, then who is? Managing your digital footprint starts with asking questions like: Who are you? What do you stand for? What are your passions and beliefs? The important lesson with managing your digital footprint is that everything we do online should represent who we are and what we stand for and we must have the knowledge that this representation will stick with us potentially forever. (Nielsen, 2010).
