Currently, I am taking an Educational Evaluation course. One of our assignments was to two develop new assessments for our curriculum, stretching to utilize new technology. As you might guess, my discipline is writing, and the course has caused me to think about new ways to approach writing and the teaching-of-writing.
In undertaking one of the assignments I thought I would take the opportunity to learn Powtoon, a web-based presentation interface that bills itself as the "antidote" to boring presentations that blends content with an animation style. The user experience is not unlike Prezi.
When I was finished, it occurred to me that Powtoon might be a great way to add some "pizzazz" to blog or social media content. As content-ingesters we consumers like pictures and moving objects.
And Powtoon was, well, fun.
See for yourself.
