Cool alternatives to power point

  1. 1. Jeffrey LasterLead Technology Teacher Jan 9, 2013
  2. 2.  Why would you NOT use PowerPoint? What could possibly be better than PowerPoint? How to use this new information
  3. 3.  With all of the free resources available, where do you start? Don’t worry about that…just start somewhere! Pick a website or two, and explore
  4. 4.  Prezi www.prezi.com A great way to jazz up your presentation! Kids will love the zoom feature!!!
  5. 5.  Building a presentation on Prezi is a lot easier than it looks Watch the instructional videos, and use some of your old PowerPoint presentations to get started
  6. 6.  The best way I have found to use Prezi (in the beginning) You don’t have to make your own content to start, just import one of your old PowerPoints! Play around inside the Prezi software to make it look cool There is a video called “Prezify Your PowerPoint”
  7. 7.  Empressr www.empressr.com View this cool Empressr tutorial http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N6rMT9mMkSE
  8. 8.  Google Yahoo PhotoBucket Flickr Or use your built-in webcam to take a picture and insert directly into your presentation
  9. 9.  Zohoshow http://www.zoho.com/show/
  10. 10.  Have others on other computers collaborate on your presentation from anywhere with Internet access Import content from PowerPoint and other presentation platforms A “Master Slide” makes it possible to choose a format that works for every slide (I spend a lot of time adjusting every PPT slide)
  11. 11.  Photo Peach www.photopeach.com Probably the easiest to use of all of the sites I’ve talked about today
  12. 12.  Facebook Picassa Your computer
  13. 13.  My Caribbean Spring Break Adventure http://photopeach.com/album/18nj2nv Notice the “Ken Burns Effect”, as the program zooms in and zooms out on each photo as it shows
  14. 14.  Make a “screen shot” of each of your PowerPoint slides “Ctrl” & “Prt Scr”, then paste into Paint, then save the picture Insert the pictures into PhotoPeach Your PowerPoint will play with the press of a button…and include background music!
