Are you looking for a PowerPoint alternative to use in your classroom? Not everyone has access to Microsoft software — if you need a different presentation tool, check out emaze.
In the above 3-Minute Classroom Problem Solver video, Kim Munoz shows how you can use emaze as a PowerPoint alternative with your students.
Emaze has a few wonderful templates designed with educators in mind. Your students will love the themes such as Chalkboard, 3D Gallery, and School. Click here to view many examples and get a feel for what you can build with emaze.
You can get started for free and create new presentations with just a few clicks. One of my favorite things about emaze is you can import your old powerpoints and turn them into emazes. This is a great way to upgrade your old presentations and give them a new look and feel.
To learn about more alternatives to the typical presentation, check out this on-demand training video from the pros in SimpleK12's Teacher Learning Community, Alternatives to Slide Presentations – Free Tools for Student Projects. Join technology trainer Lauren Boucher as she introduces free tools for student projects that go beyond the slide show. In addition to sharing the free tools, Lauren provides project ideas and classroom tips that can be used across curriculum and grade levels.
