Getting Students to create an engaging presentation and show creativity can be a difficult task.  It's easy to put all the words on a slide and read the slide to the class but it's not very engaging! Here are some tips and a blog post to help prepare for your presentation:
1. Tap your enthusiasm
2. Get to the core of your message.
3. Tell a captivating story.
4. Wow them with words.
5. Create stunning slides.
6. Keep it simple.

There are several tools that you can use to create an interesting presentation.
  • Google Presentation (incorporating YouTube Videos into the presentation
  • Prezi
  • SlideShare
  • Infographics (example http://piktochart.com)
