This is a great app for creating beautiful presentations. It's very easy to use and is designed to encourage better presentation practices, such as simplified text, high-impact imagery, and clean consistent formatting. Haiku Deck intentionally limits how much text that you can put on each of your slides. 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.
Teachers can design interactive presentations that students can view on their iPads.

As a presentation tool, students move through content at their own pace which allows for differentiation. Teachers may also choose to provide students with different presentations to further individualize instruction.
