Engaging Students with Stories & Visuals



Garr Reynolds...

in this You Tube author series, Reynolds explains the importance of being a good presenter and communicator

and offers tips for using PowerPoint to create stunning presentations. It's an hour long but well worth it if you REALLY want to learn how to move beyond template-driven bulleted PowerPoints.  He offers presentation tips at his website and on his blog for other

helpful resources.


If you look at only one, check out Reynolds Top Ten Slide Tips.
