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.

    "The digital natives of today are the ones who will be pressured to take all of the present technological wildness and make it make sense for the next generation.

If we can set them up for success, that will bring us one step closer to those super-digital natives who will flip this world upside-down with what they will have to offer.

    The rise of the super-digital native starts with how we empower the digital natives of today."
