I have kind of a love/hate relationship with Powerpoint. It’s a great tool that’s unbelievably easy to abuse. I’ve been trying to figure out more interactive ways to use Powerpoint in class that don’t just amount to “Here’s the notes, copy them while I scroll through the slides.”
While I don’t consider an animated Zeus to be interactive, I have some better ideas I’m looking forward to trying out in the next few weeks.
