Let’s ban printing presses

August 20, 2015

I’m resurrecting this funny old tweet for a good cause. The beginning of a semester is an opportunity to remind ourselves that PowerPoint is only a tool and we CAN use it well.

My favorite advice

  • Eliminate text or keep it to a bare minimum,
  • Use great images,
  • Tell stories,
  • Keep your designs simple,
  • Vary the ways you show material on a screen, and
  • Turn off the projector when you can.

Before eliminating PowerPoint we should outlaw the publication of books; there are so many terrible ones! If we banned every oft-misused tool, we would find ourselves in a pre-stone-age world.
