Standards, ISTE NETS-T : Standard 2a: Effective Teachers design or adapt relevant learning experiences that incorporate digital tools and resources to promote student learning and creativity.

Objective: By the end of this presentation, the participant will be able to analyze their use of PPT in the classroom to determine if templates, borrowed PPTs, new design principles (such as 30-20-10) or alternative formats beyond PowerPoint would be more effective for a specific lesson.

Welcome ! Today we will review how to improve or even eliminate your use of Microsoft PowerPoint Presentations. This workshop will alternate between facilitator presentation and participate practice. This page will support the workshop but doesn't substitute for actual attendance.
