Tiffani! Your article is so timely, and excellently points out the benefits of technology such as PowerPoint for teaching and learning in the classroom. I have been a teacher for 25 years, and a big part of the learning over the last ten years in my classroom has included PowerPoint presentations. Students love the timed animations feature of the ones I make, and they can double as a stand alone center when allowed to loop continuously. Thank you for this wonderful article. PowerPoint is not that scary, and your kids will thank you for trying it!
