  7. 9. http://www.wired.com/wired/archive/11.09/ppt2.html <ul><li>“ Elementary school PowerPoint exercises (as seen in teacher guides and in student work posted on the Internet) typically consist of 10 to 20 words and a piece of clip art on each slide in a presentation of three to six slides -a total of perhaps 80 words (15 seconds of silent reading) for a week of work. Students would be better off if the schools simply closed down on those days and everyone went to the Exploratorium or wrote an illustrated essay explaining something.” </li></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>~Edward Tufte </li></ul></ul></ul></ul></ul>Effective Presentations for Effective Learning
