Create Engaging Presentations with Haiku Deck

Haiku Deck is perfect for the classroom and extremely student-friendly. This app allows you to create slides with a photo background and a small amount of text (think haiku). It provides a gallery of images to choose from, and uses words on your slide to help you find the ideal background. However, you also have the option to upload your own photos.

I’ve used Haiku Deck to share teaching points, give short writing prompts and just switch it up from my usual presentation style by focusing on images as opposed to text. It doesn’t take long to make one, and students can use it to create their own presentations, too.

Haiku Deck now has an online Web App as well as a free iPad App. Learn more at
