  • @stellagoodenough My pleasure Stella!! I'm so glad you found it of use. I've been fighting the good fight against Death by PowerPoint for many years and if all educators thought like you - that term wouldn't exist anymore. Sadly, presentation skills are STILL taught incorrectly at many academic and corporate institute around the world. I don't blame PowerPoint - it is merely the tool.

  • I think you have just readjusted my entire perspective of powerpoint. Thank you! You have changed the way I plan teach and deliver my lessons in future -- perfect timing for my lesson observation next week. How simple? How effective? How good is the timing of this? How I wish I'd thought of it!
