Powerpoint is Evil

August 31, 2013 |

Well, according to Wired it is. Poor Powerpoint is the office tool people love to hate. Actaull, in a survey from the Centre for Learning & Performance Technologies Powerpoint was rated as #8 in the top 100 tools for learning. In the comments those who voted for Powerpoint stated: “most used, most abused, most versatile (even though most don’t know how to use it well). Besides Keynote, Powerpoint is the tool”  Corinne Burkhert “in it purest multimedia form of image, smooth transitions, words to nudge a thought or fire a synapse. Haven’t the bullet-point-readers have given it a bad image? It’s a super fast way to compose a picture for other places – make slide and save as jpeg” Mags Amond “Slide shows for presentations are still very popular learning resources both among teachers and students. Power Point is very comprehensive although it is easy to use. I do not…    read more

The Power Point Ranger’s Creed

This is my PowerPoint. There are many like it but mine is 97. My PowerPoint is my best friend. It is my life. I must master it as I  master my life.      My PowerPoint without me is useless. Without my PowerPoint, I am  useless.      I must format my slides true. I must brief them better than the other staff sections who are trying to out brief me.      I must brief the impact on the CINC before he asks me.  I will. My PowerPoint and myself know that what counts in this war is not the information. We know that it is the number of slides, the colors of the highlights, and the format of the  bullets that counts.      My PowerPoint is human, even as I, because it is my life.  Thus I will learn it as a brother.  I will learn its weaknesses, its strengths, its…    read more
