From this last site I found this link to a Wired article, Of PowerPoint and Pointlessness about Microsoft’s Powerpoint making inroads in the classroom. What a shame. Too many of my university days were wasted watching incoherent, over-the-top, poorly thought out presentations done in PPT. I vowed to make my final year PPT-free, instead working up skits or running around the room (to prove a point of course) or recording myself on three separate tapes timed so that three different TVs were “conversing” with each other. Lots of work but lots of fun too – and no one dozed off.
