From the ad: “Presentation tools in the classroom are now collaborative, creative, and visually stunning. If you are still stuck on hand outs and putting PowerPoints onto flash drives or emails each day, this class can help bring you and your students into the digital age! Featuring two of the most powerful digital presentation tools available for free today, Google Slides and Prezi, participants will get a hands-on look at the benefits and techniques of these awesome web –based software. ”

Participants will receive basic, hands-on training to get started using Google Slides and Prezi. Come with a ready-to-learn attitude and leave with the ability to:
· Create new presentations in multiple platforms
· Perform all the necessary tasks to create visually impressive and informative slide shows and prezis.
· Understand how to collaborate on both programs
· Gather new ideas for engaging students through these tools and encouraging them to use new, digital formats in their own presentations.
