Brain Slides: My new favorite blog

Blog3dRSSI just encountered a new blog called Brain Slides: Presentation Design for Educators, written by Nathan Cashion. This blog eloquently teaches how Powerpoint should and, more importantly, shouldn’t be used.

Presentation tips

  1. Don’t use bullet points, if you can avoid it.
  2. Occasionally use a completely black slide to bring the attention of the room back to you.
  3. Use more images and less text.
  4. Burn your current Powerpoint lectures and start over with a new approach of less-is-more.

There are also some helpful examples of “Slide Makeovers”. If you use Powerpoint for lectures, take a look at this site. It’s worth it.
