Powtoon {Cartoon Presentation Software}

Powtoon was introduced to me by a friend who was working on a presentation for one of our professional development days. She was talking about how boring PowerPoint could get when it was presenting information to those who were forced to attend meetings. She was going to try something different - and that is where Powtoon came in. Powtoon is a presentation software that allows you to share information using cartoons, speech bubbles, and animations. 

Basically, you can make cartoons enter and exit your screen at any point, and they can share information while they are there. Think about Saturday morning cartoons that you are creating yourself to share something that is of interest to you! There are some great graphics and you can even add your own images and sound.


Let's be real here, who wouldn't like a presentation where cartoons are teaching you about the next latest and greatest in the world of education?
Try it out & let me know what you think,

*If you are more of a visual learner, check out my "how to" video on using Powtoon, as well as some way to use it in the classroom.

**If you want to have your students try out Powtoon, download this tool that walks them through step by step directions on how to complete their first presentation.
