Free Technology for Teachers: Best of 2013 So Far...76 Ways to Use Haiku Deck

Free Technology for Teachers: Best of 2013 So Far...76 Ways to Use Haiku Deck | Lubbock ISD Instructional Technology | Scoop.it

Haiku Deck's Education Case Studies Pinterest board contains 76 examples of Haiku Deck being used by students and teachers. If you're not familiar with it or haven't tried Haiku Deck, here's what you need to know. It's a free iPad app for creating slideshow presentations.

 

There are two features of Haiku Deck that stand out. First, Haiku Deck intentionally limits how much text that you can put on each of your slides. Second, Haiku Deck helps you find Creative Commons licensed images for your presentations. When you type a word or words on your slides you can have Haiku Deck search for images for you. The images that Haiku Deck serves up are large enough to completely fill your slide. You can also upload your own images from your iPad or import images from Instagram and Facebook....

Haiku Deck is an outstanding presentation tool. Unfortunately it's only available for the iPad. Click here and suggest your preferred platform. I can't wait for it to be available for Windows or Android. Meanwhile, check out their stunning 76 education presentations on Pinterest or Haiku Deck's Pinterest board of best presentations. Highly recommended!

Tyler Richendollar's curator insight, July 8, 2013 10:21 AM

Teachers need more access to technology in the classroom and more support developing technology-based lessons and integrating it into the classroom.

This is a neat start. 

Jennifer Kleiner's curator insight, March 16, 2015 9:07 PM

This page links to Haiku Deck's pinterest board where there are over 300 examples of how Haiku Deck is being used in education. I love that Haiku Deck makes following best practices for presentations easy through word limits and styling and aggregating photos that meet Creative Commons guidelines. These examples provide a lot of ideas for use in K-12 and higher education.

The post gives you clear step-by-step instructions how it can be done. This may be particularly appealing to younger students.
