Poetry Visualized with Haiku Deck

 

haikudeck2300x225Haiku Deck is a free presentation tool available for the iPad and via the web.  It’s a bit like Power Point or Keynote, but it focuses more on visuals and the message rather than inundating the viewer with words and bullet points.  It’s geared for simple presentations, yet there is flexibility in the slide formats and it has a wonderful built-in search engine to locate Creative Commons licensed images.

Think OUTSIDE the box when considering these projects and the resources that your students are bringing to school.  Must they use Haiku Deck to accomplish the same types of outcomes?  No!

Since April was National Poetry Month, the Haiku Deck blog featured a wide variety of examples from teachers, some of which are featured below.  View the post in its entirety on their site.
