12 Basics – Uses for teachers
Teacher Uses of Presentation Tools Accompany demonstrations Accompany discussions Create reviewing methods (games, flashcards) Create tutorials Create virtual tours Document field trips Document change over time Develop lesson activities that require students to develop multimedia slideshows.

13 Basics – Uses for Students
Student Uses of Presentation Tools Accompany student reports Book reports Biographies Summary reports: summary of information Directions (how to) Compare / Contrast Cause / Effect Document field trips Document community maps Document change over time

14 Basics: Software Options
