Well, I have come across something that might make things a little more interesting and a little bit more calm. Here lately I have been doing a lot of research into applying and integrating technology into the secondary field (which is so foreign to me). Anywho, I came across PowToon. I don't know if you are familiar with the Common Craft website, but PowToons reminds me very much of the presentations you can find here. There are several different templates to choose from. I have made two presentations myself to use with my teachers and I keep going back and editing them and adding more to it. What a great way for both teachers and students to make their presentation WAY more interesting while at the same time tying in some audio-visual and programming skills.
Hi! My name is Allison Barton, a former elementary school teacher turned Technology Integration Specialist at Greenville High School in Greenville, South Carolina. I have been teaching for 11 years and have relied on technology during that time to excite, engage, and educate my students (both young and old). I also enjoy very much sharing my knowledge about technology with other teachers.
