How I Use It
I used PowToon as a presentation tool for High School students. I worked well as an alternative to Google Slides and Power Point. The templates were easy to use and the tools were engaging and fun to use. Students do need to be familiar with the templates and content that comes along with them so they remember to delete things or change the information to match their topic and presentation theme. I do wish PowToon offered a collaborative option similar to Google Slides so students could collaborate and work together on some things. The final projects were easy to access via links.
My Take
I like using PowToon as a presentation tool. The animation and ease of use make it a fun and engaging tool for the classroom. Powtoon provides awesome resources for help and assistance. Students can easily submit links to teachers. I would love to see a collaborative option added to this tool.
