    PowerPoint for Teachers Makes It Easy

    I teach grades 11-12 and have limited computer skills. Nevertheless, with the step-by-step, logical guidance provided by this book, I have been able to make very engaging, effective PowerPoint slides. And of considerable importance to me, the process has been easy and fun. If you are new to PowerPoint like me, I recommend this book as a way to jumpstart your video slidemaking to quickly and easily create visual aids suitable to meet today's teaching challenges.

    Jane Kennedy, Science teacher

    I've been using PowerPoint for several year now and always felt I needed to know more. The book opened my eyes to interactivity, which I never thought was possible. Try interactive images! Try games! Wow! There is a lot more. Great ideas for projects, clear and concise instructions, easy to follow and available for all PowerPoint editions ever released! Also: try the book's companion website and download templates! I already have shown the book to my colleagues and friends. Buy it, you will never regret!
