Presentations with Haiku Deck

Haiku Deck is a wonderful free app for iPad which really encourages high quality presentations using Creative Commons images.

Here's a quick tutorial on how to get started:

1. Open the Haiku Deck app and click on the + button to start a new presentation.

2. Type in a title to your new presentation.

3. This is your user interface. There are 3 tabs on the left:

4. Tap to add any text you want to appear while in the text tab. Don't use too many words! Space is limited for a reason.

5. This is the image tab. Type some keywords or click from the keywords suggested and scroll to select an image. A preview is available on the right.

6. This is the layout tab. This allows you to arrange your text on the page to best match your image.

7. To add a new slide, click on the + button at the bottom right.

I hope you enjoy making stunning presentations with your students!
