Recently, a report from researchers of the University of New South Wales called for the use of Powerpoint presentation to be ditched because our brains cannot read and listen well at the same time.

This of course refers to the most popular use of Powerpoint to have extensive chunks of text or lists of bullet points.

For some time now, some experts in making effective presentations have been saying that the most critical use of Powerpoint is the ability for us to use visuals to create impact. With digital photography becoming very accessible, the exploration of powerful images in communication and learning has been made so much easier.

On closer examination, is it not the person rather than the tool that makes all the difference?

I also enjoyed reading the insights from this site.
