Slide 280

Have you notice how much our students depend on You Tube? When they are working on a project for me, that seems to be one of the first questions that comes up....can we add a You Tube Video?

Recently, one of my computer apps students came to me asking for help with his science project. He was AMAZED that his science teacher expected him to do his project on a piece of cardboard when he had all of his web tools he could use. PRECIOUS! He decided to put his entire project on a powerpoint. He worked hard on his project and was very proud until he got to the point where he wanted to upload a You Tube video. MAJOR PROBLEM!!!

I told him about Slide 280 which is a great web 2.0 tool where we can create and present beautiful presentations with a bonus. We can now EASILY include photos and movies to our presentation directly from popular web services like Flickr and YouTube. It works like a dream.


Bonus: A saved Slide 280 comes with an embed code!
