This activity demonstrates the academic advantages of integrating presentation tools into the classroom effectively. Basic design and attribution principles are discussed. It concludes with a Jeopardy-style quiz to assess how well the students were listening. Click on the slide above for lesson plan, rubric, and assessment tools.
In Nepali, didi means older sister and is often used to describe one who works for you, one you respect, one who walks beside you on your journey. I work hard to bring teachers, parents, and students the best educational technology tools out there that educate, engage, and empower. Enjoy!
