Technology Thursday: PowerPoint Hacks - History Gal

Technology Thursday: PowerPoint Hacks, I'm joining up with Teaching Trio for Technology Thursday!

During the last year, I've become a huge fan of PowerPoint. Maneuvering text and images is a breeze in PowerPoint. I use it for just about all of the documents and images I create on my computer. Since I've been spending so much time creating in PowerPoint, I've discovered lots of fantastic features!

  1. Andrea,

    Thanks for sharing these great tips on using Powerpoint. I haven't used Powerpoint in a long time since our district stopped purchasing for our Macs. I have had to instead master Keynote. I do miss Powerpoint sometimes! I like the way you are annotating your screenshots in your "how to" pages. Are you using Powerpoint or something else to do this?

  3. Thanks for all the great hacks! I forget about the border one and end up always adding a png frame. I'll have to try this next time I use Powerpoint!

  4. Alison - You can always save your created borders as pngs and use them in additional slides:)
