Teach Graphic Design Basics with PowerPoint
Lazaros, Edward J.; Spotts, Thomas H.
Tech Directions, v67 n3 p21-23, 25 Oct 2007
While PowerPoint is generally regarded as simply software for creating slide presentations, it includes often overlooked--but powerful--drawing tools. Because it is part of the Microsoft Office package, PowerPoint comes preloaded on many computers and thus is already available in many classrooms. Since most computers are not preloaded with good drawing programs, use of PowerPoint will allow educators to teach graphic design concepts without having to purchase expensive additional software. This article presents an activity for using PowerPoint to teach graphic design that provides both cost-effective and educationally effective use of the computer in a technology education class. (Contains 10 figures.)
