Another way to grab students attention visually instead of PowerPoint is Prezi.  Prezi is a non-linear instead of a sequential slide presentation.  You can use text and pictures just as you would with PowerPoint, but you can also include videos and other presentation objects!

No internet connection in your classroom?  No problem, you can create your presentation online and then download the final product so that you don’t require an internet connection to display the presentation.

Okay, so maybe the  sequential slide presentation is what you need, but with PowerPoint you experience problems like:

  •  Forgot the flash drive
  • You burned the ppt onto a disc and it will not play

Try Google Presentations, an easy way to create online presentations and you never have to worry about that flash drive or disc!
