Is PowerPoint Dead?
One of the five big power roles of an instructional coach is that of a Learning Facilitator. That role includes presenting to large groups of teachers and small groups of teachers alike. If you primarily do your presenting using PowerPoint as your tool, please step away from your computer, and read Seth Godin's post Nine Steps to PowerPoint Magic and Garr Reynolds and Guy Kawasaki's text, Presentation Zen. At my school, I want to be on top of my game, and my thinking and presentaiton style have certainly changed for the better with these two very quick reads.
