Slideshare

Mira Baird, Trinity Grammar School
Slideshare.comallows you to share either in a public space or a private, protected space, presentations made in Power Point, Keynote, MS Word or PDF's.

Five ways to start using Slideshare today:
  1. Have a great presentation in your files that you use over and over with classes each year? Upload to Slideshare and send the link to your students, your blog page, your colleagues etc.
  2. Do you ask your students to prepare presentations for a topic or project? Publish to Slideshare and ask other students to evaluate the presentations during a peer-editing lesson
  3. Have you presented a PD session to colleagues? Keep the PD alive by sending them your Slideshare link and invite feedback. Revisit at your next PD to see comments and suggestions
  4. Upload audio to your presentations and create a slidecast in Slideshare - too easy
  5. Use Slideshare for examination revision tips and tricks for seniors - send them the link to use at home in the lead-up to exams

Teach your students to narrate their slides instead of just reading from them: go to presentationzen.com for practical tips and tricks to create dynamic and interesting presentations.

It's actually called the Internet Archive, but Googling "Wayback Machine" finds it. Have a look what web pages looked like at a previous date.

Who remembers Rocky & Bullwinkle? Mr Peabody? His way of taking Sherman back to the past to see how it was?
Check out some ancient websites, butnot the really early ones. (The Armidale School website from 1993 didn't feature - sob - the earliest was 1996 )
