Most Popular Posts of the Year - #16, Jeopardy PowerPoint

Like a lot of other people are, I'm taking this week to relax a bit and do some things that I haven't had time for lately. Therefore, all this week I'm rewinding the year by republishing the 25 most-read posts of the year. I hope that those of you who are also on vacation this week, enjoy every moment of it. See you (virtually) in the New Year.

If their website is any indication, Jefferson County Schools in Tennessee must be a very good place to teach. The website contains numerous, good, technology resources. One such resource is a collection of templates for building PowerPoint games based on the concepts of Jeopardy, Who Wants to be a Millionaire, Wheel of Fortune, Bingo, and $25,000 Pyramid. All of these templates can be downloaded from the site and altered to suit your needs.

Applications for Education
Students generally find studying to be a lot more enjoyable when they can do it in a game format. These templates provide a good way to build review games that your whole class can play at once.
