I use PowerPoint a great deal in my classes and keep trying to make the slides and presentations more effective for teaching. As I was learning, I basically retyped overhead projector slides onto PowerPoint. This at least gave me some content, but it was a woeful misuse of PowerPoint. Each semester, I try to upgrade my PowerPoint presentations.
Recently, I have been experimenting with Photo Story 3 for Windows, a free download from Microsoft. This program enables a person to use photos, add music and text to make a short video story. I made one for adjectives that I would like to use with my writing classes.
