I came across an app that is easy and a great tool for teachers – Haiku Deck. Haiku Deck is a presentation tool that is elegant and simple. There are a range of fonts and layouts available. It’s as easy as clicking and typing.
My favorite part of the app is the picture tool. When words are typed in, the app automatically finds pictures to apply to the background. The app pulls from millions of free, stunning Getty images. In fact, USA Today reported that Haiku Deck has over 35 million free Creative Commons licensed photos.
I enjoy the fact that I don’t have to open a browser and search separately for photos. It’s all-in-one! The presentations can be shared in Twitter, Facebook, embedded on a blog or website, or saved as a .pdf. Haiku Deck allows you to add speaker notes, or public notes for online viewing. Haiku Deck comes with 5 templates or create your own. There are others available for purchase. Give it a try!
