Death by powerpoint is an example of technology being used in the wrong way. We stand in front of the classroom and talk about what is already on the slide. Students have to read, hear and understand all in one slide. What if our slides became our message and we the conductors. We can change the presentation from the lecture up front to group discussions, interactions and most importantly, an experience. The best part is that we can do it all in one slide.
