There are two features of Haiku Deck that stand out. First, Haiku Deck intentionally limits how much text that you can put on each of your slides. Second, Haiku Deck helps you find Creative Commons licensed images for your presentations. When you type a word or words on your slides you can have Haiku Deck search for images for you. The images that Haiku Deck serves up are large enough to completely fill your slide. You can also upload your own images from your iPad or import images from Instagram and Facebook.

Applications for Education
Without the option to create long lists of bullett points or big blocks of texts, the beauty of Haiku Deck is that after students create visually pleasing slides they then have to focus on really knowing their material before presenting to an audience.
While we're on the topic of sharing presentations, a question that I'm often asked is, "how can I have my students project from their iPads." There are three options that I've used. First, I have projected using a VGA dongle. Second, I've used the Reflection App to mirror my iPad to my MacBook. Third, I've used Apple TV.
