A Powerpoint Checklist

Action and Reaction, originally uploaded by tropicaLiving.
I attended a great workshop at school today. We discussed the use of -web1.0 - Powerpoint presentations in class. We agreed that a good presentation helps us build a sense of community, as all learners tend to be on the same page, so to speak.
I personally believe that a well designed presentation facilitates learning, but we need to keep in mind many things when comes to putting one together.
I thought I was doing ok, but when the presenter asked us:
"As we are living the concept age...How many of you actually use powerpoints to tell stories?"
"How many of you use powerpoints to have students create?"
Well... She got my attention. I decided to put a checklist together to raise my awareness of how engaging my presentations are. Please, feel free to adapt and make suggestions!
