Computers are still being used in education to teach low-level skills, while even the most common programs like MSOffice have a great potent to deepen student learning. PowerPoint has been routinely used as a presentation tool; however, its potential as a tool for problem-based activities and interactivity has not been adequately revealed. The workshop will suggest simple but exciting and original ways of using PowerPoint as a tool for creating interactive quizzes, clickable maps and diagrams. The objective of such quizzes and interactive maps is to make learning more problem-based and fun. The eventual aim of this application of PowerPoint is to provide school and university students with a new medium for their projects and learning products. Both solving and creating quizzes and clickable maps in PowerPoint will enhance and deepen teaching and learning.
