Besides using Haiku Deck app to create visually-appealing presentations, what if you used it with students to help them use language with content produced by real people. So, it is the old "this is..; she does this and that" with a twist in authenticity.
Take, for example, this presentation:
Created with Haiku Deck, the free presentation app for iPad
- The teacher could ask students to present her in the form of a paragraph with the most important information.
- Students can prepare questions based on the information presented, and then another students would act out as if she were the lady.
- Students could work on expanding the information on a slide as if they were the woman, i.e., they could talk about her 3 sons and husband (slide 2)
I'm sure you'll find wonderful "about me" presentations to work with language authentically in Haiku Deck's Pinterest Board:
Of course, it would be great if students could use one of the sample presentations to prepare their own "about me" page.
