My Sociology class has a love affair with PowerPoint. Granted, we do a LOT of posters, fliers, brochures and pamphlets. A couple former yearbook students are comfortable with Publisher but I certainly don't require everyone to use it.
All I'm really interested in is the content, not the packaging, but after three weeks I'm already weary of seeing the same style presentations. I'm really glad I found MAKE BELIEFS COMIX! Online Educational Comic Generator for Kids of All Ages It's free, online and easy to use. The best part is that it gives me a new method for them to illustrate concepts learned!
