Ban PowerPoints

Visible to anyone in the world

They are worse than a crutch, they are a smoke screen of obfuscation, lack of nerve and even of understanding. All anyone needs to do is to get up and talk.

Steve Jobs banned PowerPoint. There's plenty of software I'd ban in favour of a napkin or the back of an envelope.

Hi Jonathan

I laughed at your comment and I agree....

I once watched four 8 year olds fall asleep in a power point presentation of 35 minutes. The teacher was devastated but couldn't understand that passive learning is passive learning no matter what it's dressed up as!

Feliz Año Nuevo
