PPT becomes more of a desktop vs a slide show
1st tip: Prohibit bullets
the learning space and the presentation space
the assignment is in the page...not somewhere else!
also directions to do the activity..even some skill if needed
use the notes box for questions...never to be played as a slideshow
first example was a photo with speech bubbles!
add a sound...record what the person in the picture may say
speech bubble site
other speech bubble ideas:
dialog historical figures, brainstorm plot, setting, react to peer pressure, compare science image to student project (dissection of frog), solve architect's geometry dilemma
concern: google the pictures...no mention of copyright or creative commons
