Going back to the week of September 14-20, 2008 for this blast-from-the-past post led me to the HIT- Hokanson’s Instructional Technology blog entry entitled How to Embed a PowerPoint in a WordPress Post.

This article was short and sweet- sign in to SlideShare, upload your presentation, copy the embed code, and paste it into your post.

After following those simple directions, I was still having difficulty getting presentations to appear in this post until I visited this WordPress support page that outlined the exact procedure for me.

Now that I’ve figured it out, I decided to share this presentation on my vision for technology integration in our district.

Note: If you are viewing this on the mobile version of my blog at http://timsblog.mofuse.mobi/iphone, the presentation is not appearing on the screen.

SlideShare is a great tool that will help you embed basic PowerPoint presentations into websites and blog posts.  Check it out.


Take Your End-of-the-Year Slideshow Up A Notch April 15, 2009

It’s the time of year when teachers, coaches, and administrators are throwing together slide shows for graduation, awards assemblies, volunteer banquets, etc.

Why not take your slideshow up to the next level?

If you haven’t checked out Animoto yet, you need to.

Animoto is a free online tool that allows you to easily create “MTV-like” videos.

Simply upload your pictures, select music from Animoto’s royalty-free collection or from your own library, and then press a button.  Bam!  You’re done and the product looks like you hired a professional to put the presentation together.

If you’d rather have narration than music, that’s possible too.

Animoto offers two account types- paid “All-Access,” and free accounts which are limited to 30 second “shorts.”

However, educators (and students) get an “All-Access” pass for FREE!
