Discovery: Haiku Deck

I’ve been hearing a lot about Haiku Deck from other educators.  I decided to give it a whirl for this project to test it’s capabilities and limitations.  I used the online beta version that I had applied for a week or so ago.  I’ll be interested in seeing how it works on my iPad.

From Rhyme to Poetry

Pros:

  • I love the ease of adding Creative Commons images.  It’s all right in one place!  No need to go back and forth between sites, downloading and uploading, etc.
  • Powerful image + few words = dynamic presentation.


Cons:

  • Where is the “undo” button?!  I changed images a couple of times and then lost the image that really fit the idea I was looking for.
  • Few words.  This one is a plus and a minus.  Really had to condense my thoughts.  Not necessarily the best for a solo/no-talk presentation.
  • Lacking the ability to manipulate font sizes.
  • Difficult to put a single quote up as it usually went over the word count.

Bottom Line: Definitely using it again!  Definitely sharing it with friends and colleagues!
