2 May, 2010 Ignite PowerPoint By way of update on Sliding into Oblivion and Ten Copyright Myths, and in the week when the Pentagon has come to believe that PowerPoint is damaging the US war effort in Iraq and Afgahnistan, here are two Ignite Dublin presentations on PowerPoint. First, Mark Congiusta on PowerPoint: The Good, The Bad and The Ugly. (Just Kidding: There’s Nothing Good About PowerPoint) at Ignite Dublin #3: Second, Rowan Manahan on If PowerPoint is the answer, it must have been a stupid question Ignite Dublin #4: Bonus: for photos see this photo-stream (thanks to Loes van Mierlo).

Powerpoint can be handy if used for visual reinforcement of an idea or to add another level to a presentation, but it seems designed to prevent its own effective use. Doing anything useful with it is a struggle against all the default templates, which seem to believe that meaningless phrases import wisdom and knowledge if they have a large dot in front of them! 4 May, 2010 Coleman Loved the presentations. 6 May, 2010 Legal Eagle HAHAHAHAHA. I hate PowerPoint. Like Oisín says, the templates are seriously annoying. If forced to use PowerPoint to teach, I use it for topic headings, case citations and extracts from cases and legislation, but not much more. 11 May, 2010 Add a Comment Cancel reply Your email address will not be published.
