November’s Learning and Leading with technology had a great point/counterpoint discussion of the question, Is PowerPoint Crippling Our Students? In my mind, the tool itself is not the problem. What we ask students to do with the tool may be a problem. But, if it is pushing students to think and communicate, it is probably serving an educational purpose. If we can get students to the next level of deciding when it is and when it isn’t appropriate to use the tool, (regardless of how someone else views it “should” be used) then we really will have educated our student.
