A Very Short Story about PowerPoint

"And I have to say," said the PowerPoint skeptic, "even a good PowerPoint presentation doesn't look very good." He continued: "It's as if a basic and not especially impressive product was rolled out, and educators at large accepted it as the way forward." He finished: "At the end of the day, how good is PowerPoint as a product? Why do so many people accept it? Are there not so many better ways?" The End.

Author's note: story was inspired by Catherine Adams, "PowerPoint, habits of mind, and classroom culture," Journal of Curriculum Studies, 2006, Vol. 38, No. 4, 389-411.

  1. I agree with the author, and the essay is beautifully written as well. Information is power, and new knowledge should be encouraged to be discovered when it comes to the growth of the globe. Every area should be clearly described and explained in light of current knowledge and results in the relevant settings. Considering on that the author has done a marvelous work and I believe all the professional writers and writing services should do the same.
