Creating Learning Games with PowerPoint

In part three of the Seal Surfer vocabulary resource re-mix, I will demonstrate how to create learning games using PowerPoint.

If the video does not appear above this text, click this link. (This link requires QuickTime player from Apple. You can download it here.

The following two links are a couple of tutorials covering two examples I whipped up to demonstrate using PowerPoint as a game. I also included the actual PowerPoint templates so that you can open them up and modify them for your own use.

Vocabulary Challenge - "Time Line Model"

Vocabulary Challenge - "Jeopardy Style Model"

The following screen cast is a tutorial that will walk you through the process of creating your very own PowerPoint game.

Thanks for the links! I'm always looking for ways to put a new spin on an old classic.

John, great posts and great ideas. I did notice thought that you have incorrect links going to the template for the Jeopardy style template and the timeline model template. Thought you would want to fix it, but couldn't find an email address to contact you directly.

Anyway, thanks for the great ideas.
