Workshop Description:
This workshop will be an intense hour of PowerPoint 2007 features to make your presentations POP. Three "interactive" and "engaging" PowerPoint features will be introduced. The workshop will be hands on, and participants will walk away with at least one awesome teacher- or learner-centered PowerPoint presentation ready to use the next day in class! Participants should come prepared with classroom lessons and materials to use in building a powerfully engaging PowerPoint presentation. (note: although the emphasis is on PowerPoint 2007, if you currently are a 2003 user, most features are adaptable)
