  • I use Keynote on my MacBook, I find it a whole lot easier to use than powerpoint. I then export them as a PDF document which keeps their integrity. If I convert them to powerpoint, it throws up a lot of errors and changes, which can take hours to rectify. PDF documents can be used on any computer. This presentation is the result of a great series of lessons with a high achieving year 7 class. It generated some fantastic learning through the use of images rather than text. Try it, it works! Thanks for the feedback.

  • Great PPT as per usual SImon, I've been grateful for a few quotes and ideas from viewing these. I was just wondering which software you used to put together your PPT's. Notebook? The Images and the way they are adapted to contain text are imaginative and I love the boldness of it all. Thanks :o)
