Aha! She wanted them to research other tools, but she only ever used presentations that had already been created in PowerPoint, sometimes provided to her by other teachers. So an idea was born! I promised to put together a hands-on workshop for her Teacher Pathway students to introduce them to new tools and explain the benefits of each. In the workshop, I plan to also talk about good presentation skills (what to do and what NOT to do), how to prepare for a presentation, and responsible image use and citation.
We are tentatively scheduled for late January....and another teacher has already approached me for late February for his class of special needs Econ students!
What else needs to be in such a presentation? What are your favorite presentation tools or extra?
