PowerPoint 2010: Converting Presentations to Movies

I Came, I Saw, I Learned

In previous versions of PowerPoint, converting presentations to movies  could be a bit of a laborious task. You won't be clicking your mouse to continue the presentation once it is a movie and you may find that the default transition time goes too fast (or not fast enough) for your liking.   The good news: In PowerPoint 2007, not only did you need to go in to Windows Movie Maker to convert your presentations to movies, but in doing so you lost any transitions or animation effects you may have added. by AJ George.   Choose File > Save As.

What does the 80's movie WarGames tell us about learning games?

Integrated Learnings

I recently watched the 1980's movie WarGames with my son. As a dad, I often use movies like that as an opportunity to teach something new to my son. The movie is about a young computer hacker, played by Mathew Broderick , who unwittingly accesses a NORAD supercomputer controlling United States military nuclear weapons during the Cold War. As a child in 1983 I was captivated by the science and drama of the movie. It is the same as the moral of the movie: a global thermonuclear war almost always results in mutually insured destruction. by Jonathan Shoaf.
