Classroom Rules

Item: Like many educators/business people I'm bored and turned off by "traditional" PowerPoint.

Item: My students love making PowerPoint presentations and feel comfortable with this tool.

Item: Staff members are expected to discuss classroom rules at the beginning of the new school year.

Solution: I'll try to show students a different way of conveying information by creating a virtually text-free (except for the first and last slide) SlideShare show.

Classroom Rules
View SlideShare presentation or Upload your own.

*I'll give you a few days to mull this over, then share my interpretation and that of my students.

Well done. I love it. Have you seen this:

Seems like a cool tool!

I agree: I am bored with traditional PowerPoint. But, I like that you are proving that PowerPoint isn't the problem. The traditional text based design is the problem. How to get people to change...lead by example and show them how effective PowerPoint can be! I can't wait to hear your students' interpretations.

This was fun for me, and seemed to interest my students. I'm already thinking of what to tackle next.
