Haiku Deck

Haiku Deck is a great tool for helping students get down the the essence of a presentation.  Students are able to make use of a library of stunning images or import their own, then add slide titles and text over top.  There isn’t a lot of room to add a lot of text, without obscuring the images, making it so the slide creator(s) need to focus in on key points or spread information over multiple slides.  Presentations can be shared to social media sites, have the URL emailed, embedded on blogs, and even downloaded for offline sharing.

Check out the example below:
