There is some good advice on the web on presentations, a subject close to teachers’ hearts.
Sacha Chua writes so well on learning. Her hand-drawn presentations make a refreshing change.
If you like the hand-drawn style, Betsy Streeter’s Ten Great Uses For a Pencil and How to Draw What’s Not There!
These are such a good reminders that it is the content that matters not the tools.
Sacha’s comment ‘Paper is the New PowerPoint’ reminds me of using some of the excellent ways of writing Mathematics online with a graphics tablet which is a great way to respond to student queries. I think for me an online whiteboard tool is the new LaTeX!
An excellent reminder that PowerPoint is just a tool from Clear Presentation Design
From Alexei Kapterev: Death by PowerPoint (and how to fight it).
From Jessedee: You Suck at PowerPoint
and from Alexander Osterwalder Good PowerPoint Design:
