LoyolaÂ University Chicago has done a really nice job putting togetherÂ their “Teaching with Technology Guide.”
As with any resourceÂ designed to serve a specific institution, external folks should be aware that certain policies may not be applicable and particular tools may not be supported.
In general, though, an impressive and fairly comprehensive resource.
The focus here is on journalism (and communicating to a lay audience), but has clear application beyond that for the academic/educational context. Also some solid basic lessons about communicating information that are of value for creating simple slide decks like PowerPoint.
A few of the resources mentioned later in the video are:
