Technology: Presentations in the Cloud with a Twist
Siegle, Del
Gifted Child Today, v34 n4 p54-58 Oct 2011
Technology tools have come a long way from early word processing applications and opportunities for students to engage in simple programming. Many tools now exist for students to develop and share products in a variety of formats and for a wide range of audiences. PowerPoint is probably the most ubiquitously used tool for student projects. In addition to the myriad of other software that is available, the advent of cloud computing has ushered in additional options for students and educators. Cloud computing provides students with the means to express themselves, their studies, their research, and their creativity in unique ways. Additionally, with many cloud computing options, students can create projects from any computer connected to the Internet, without the prohibitive cost (monetary and memory) of software. The purpose of this article is to share two free presentation options that go beyond a traditional slideshow format and capitalize on multimedia formats and the interactive features of the Internet.
