Rota #2: Presentation and Blackboards (not the program, but the slate)

Time it doth changeth

His number 2 is: Blackboard Technique. I know that seldom are blackboards or whiteboards or other-color boards used anymore. Powerpoint is all. Much of my perspective on powerpoint follows Edward Tufte: (follow the link for the amusing captions, though my favorite is still “there is no bullet list like Stalin’s bullet list).

Although I am also a big fan of  Garr Reynolds   and Presentation Zen.

Our images are without question better for graphics programs and ppt. I still think that the process of writing with the class or audience (when done correctly, meeting people’s eyes and all that) is powerful.
