Great Teachers use PowerPoint Creatively
Summertime is usually perceived as a slower time for educators...but not necessarily!
Many teachers use their summer break to relentlessly prepare for autumn. And boy, do teachers ever have a lot to study and learn about presentation technology this summer!
- Professors are interested in learning how to podcast their lectures so that students can download them to their iPods.
- Teachers are putting streaming media PowerPoint flashcards online so that students can learn new vocabularies whenever it is convenient.
- Many trainers are downloading the new and free PowerPoint 2007 beta to evaluate whether it will be a worthwhile upgrade to purchase next year.
How have all the new changes in presentation technology affected your summer "vacation"?
