I love Slideshare.net. It’s not only a great way to share content with others, but it also provides slide designers with endless inspiration as well as some much needed reality checks on the state and place of presentation design in most industries. Many times, it isn’t until my students analyze a Slideshare presentation by a design master like Jesse Dee that they truly see the resonating impact a presentation can have. I don’t upload all of my work to Slideshare, but one project I have added to this resource that I myself am pretty proud of is the Tweak Your Slides deck I developed for educators both at my school and beyond. I feel sometimes that resistance is strongest from educators, who are understandably very busy and must devote much time to instruction and assessment. I’ve tried to develop a set of principles that are easy to apply and use my own previous decks as proof of concept. You truly can do this; yes it takes time and effort, but anything worth doing does.
Today, Tweak Your Slides is featured as a top presentation of the day, and I couldn’t be more proud. I truly hope it adds value to its intended audience–superteachers everywhere!
