How I Use It
Used with alternative education students in a blended learning environment. students age 14-20 years old. Show students the application and helped download app. Showed how to set up log in - required for saving. Let students continue on their own. Students created haiku decks on the set up of state government prior to a State Capitol field trip Students email presentations and I converted to ppt. files. Some students did presentations on the internet version of haiku deck, they ran into more issues than those that working on the app version.
My Take
I liked using haiku deck with my group of learners. I really liked the fact that the focus was on pictures instead of words and that the program limited the number of words per slide. I also really liked that it allowed students to use their creativity to interpret the information when selecting background images. Even though the students were using the same information their presentations were all a little bit different based on the story they chose to tell using the pictures. I also liked that it was very easy to export you deck once it was complete to a power point file to be shared or presented. They only issues we came across was the internet version of haiku deck seemed more "buggy" than the iPad app, students ran into issues saving their presentations, loading them, and their stock images loading quickly on the internet version, whereas there were no issues with the iPad app version.
