That’s what I like! being spoiled for choice. I already have a quite a few choices in how I can and do present material because it is what I have worked on over the last 2 years in particular. It means my students have those choices too. Now, it has just become so much more exciting! A chance to really broaden our presentation scope and to have a real opportunity to choose the right software/tool for the job. This afternoon I downloaded the free Haiku Deck app onto my iPad. I nearly didn’t because I thought it was something for Japanese and then I did because I am trying to learn a bit of Japanese. I realised the word deck was being used to mean slide set ( as in deck of slide cards ) and have duly noted a linguistic change I need to make. The Haiku Deck presentation app is really very good if you want to put together something quickly but you want it to look effective. I just did the one they guide you through and I really appreciated that aspect of the process. They were showing me how to use their software in a really good way. I can make better presentations than the one I made – but supposing I just had my iPad and I wanted to do something quickly and easily? I liked how it allowed me to change themes and find some great images and charts. I could then put it up on the web using my Twitter account and so I had a spot to find my presentation on the web .Now I can access it from my desktop. That easy. I also tweeted about it so I could find the link to my Haiku Deck presentation! I found out about this presentation tool on the Technology Tools for Teachers . If you go to this link you will find a whole list of presentation options for different devices and venues. I know a lot of them but I plan to try the ones I am not familiar with.
