Free Technology for Teachers: Haiku Deck to PowerPoint & PowerPoint to Haiku Deck - 3 views

  •  
    "Haiku Deck is a fantastic tool for designing slideshow presentations. The best aspect of Haiku Deck is the built-in Creative Commons image search tool. That tool makes it easy to find high resolution images to match the message of each slide in your presentation. Over the last year I've had a handful of occasions on which used Haiku Deck to find images and design slides before dropping them into Keynote. On the same track, Haiku Deck recently published directions for exporting Haiku Deck to PowerPoint. That option is available in both the iPad and web app versions of Haiku Deck.

    "Most of the time when I take my dogs out at night I have to put on a headlamp (they have their own to wear too) so that I can see them in the dark. But this week the combination of a full moon and a fresh blanket of snow canceled the need for the headlamps. In the following Minute Physics video we learn why the full moon appears brighter in the winter. Hint, it's not the snow cover that makes the big difference."
