Many EFL teachers use technology in the classroom as teaching aids and as a tool to help enhance their students’ learning experience. Presentation software, like Microsoft PowerPoint and Apple Keynote, is often used to display lecture/ presentation notes and homework on the screen, but more creative use of the software tends to be rare. In this presentation, we will learn practical ways in which we can use animation, simple images and shapes to illustrate and explain lecture notes and assignments. Examples will be given using activities the presenter has created and used in the EFL classroom.
