Here's a great article from Wired that you don't want to miss. It talks about Microsoft's Dave Karle, an Army veteran whose latest mission is to get people in the Army, and eventually elsewhere, to use PowerPoint correctly, or at the very least to stop using it incorrectly.
Or not use PowerPoint at all, depending on what the presenter is presenting. “Use Word sometimes instead of PowerPoint. Use a whiteboard sometimes,” Karle says. “It’s all about fixing the tool behind the tool.” He pauses. “I love that phrase.”
