I couldn't agree more about how insulting a poweroint is when we are
just read to from what is on the screen. Questions are ok, a few word
prompts, vocab, etc., but the words on the screen are jumping off points
for discussion most of the time. Or identification of artworks. I just
see it as a way to organize and keep visuals from year to year that
beats anything else for the BUSY AS HECK teachers that we all are. Life
never gets calmer, and I never seem to have LESS to do from year to
year. This is the first thing to come along in ages that once it's done
SAVES me a ton of time. The key is once it's done. It does take time
to create a good one. I just learned a new software today called "Photo
Story" or maybe it's "Picture Story." It puts stills together like a
video. Extremely easy to learn and filled with fun new things not
available in PPT. You can create something in this software program and
import it into a powerpoint very easily, just like any link.
