Peter de Jager wrote, “I'll lay even money that 9 out of 10 presenters will, sometime during their presentation, put up a slide so incredibly complex, detailed, and convoluted that it is impossible to see, never mind decipher. As the presenter places this marvelous creation in front of you, he will say, ‘I know you can't read this, but . . .’” (TechnoScope, Nov. 2002).

In this workshop, we will discuss some good and bad ways that powerpoint is used in the classroom, and we will generate some guidelines that will work in your classes. Come and share your ideas and experiences with this (pervasive) technology.
