Flip through this resource here!

Check out a little PowerPoint tip here.  Hehe :)

Please note, this resource is readily available (free) to NZATE members via their website as part of the collection of resources from the 2021 conference.  


This booklet is a step-by-step guide, complete with labelled screen snips to show you key tools needed to create your resources in PowerPoint rather than stinky MS word or Google Docs where you have everything jumping around driving you nuts.  Guide includes key tools such as:

  • how to resize your page to A4

  • how to use the Slide Master to create a template to use over and over again

  • how to keep your hyperlinks blue so that your documents doesn't look 'used' (Yes! this is a thing!)

  • how to spice up your graphics ... and more. 


Zipped folder includes:

  • The ebook as a PDF and

  • A separate page in PowerPoint with a preformatted table you can copy and paste. This saves you time reformatting the default PowerPoint table which is an ugly blue!


Suitable for the beginner as well as for those already familiar with PowerPoint but not familiar with some of the cooler tools that help you create A4/letter sized resources with easily and quickly. Use it as an ebook or print to sit beside you while you work. Enjoy!
