Great ideas to make slides more interesting to students!
There were a few tools that I hadn't used before in this presentation. I absolutely love the emojis and will just need to take some time to play to be sure that the other tricks presented won't be forgotten. Creating visual presentations is something that I enjoy doing and therefore I am excited to utilize these new tidbits of information!
