i am a lake – Created with Haiku Deck, presentation software that inspires
I always enjoy projects that allow for creativity, both in visually artistic ways or utilizing the written word. I also know from personal experience how bogged down I can get in choosing exactly the right picture out of hundreds, so I love the limitations implemented by this program–in building the slides I never felt like I didn’t have enough choices, only that I’d used the wrong search term. This also helped in knowing which words should wind up on the slides.
I think Haikudeck is a really good introductory tool, and might help students understand how easy it should be to create a visually appealing slideshow that conveys simple ideas in an easy-to-read format. It might also be good for presenting small projects, where you don’t need to convey as much information as an average powerpoint.
