PDF to PowerPoint Converter — Hidden Gem for Tech Savvy Teachers


Guest Post:

We can freely say that, in 2016, technology is present in all aspects of our lives. From ordinary things, such as sending emails, to catching Pokémon’s with our smartphones, tech is everywhere and it’s here to stay. The same goes for education, where educational technology is becoming more relevant than ever. Among everything else it brought to the table, EdTech gave us new ways on how teachers hold their lectures. As the traditional methods of teaching became decreasingly interesting to students, teachers started to use technology to reach younger generations and do so in an interesting way.

However, one thing remained the same and it concerned the teachers themselves. Regardless of the pending changes, one of the most difficult things in that EdTech evolution was to create visually appealing and interesting lectures. To be specific, it came to a point when teachers needed a way to improve the exact process of getting their resources into a contextually appropriate PowerPoint presentation.

Now, since this is 21st century and the majority of educational resources are trapped inside a PDF format, one of the big challenges is to find a cost-friendly solution for transporting PDF into PowerPoint. Such solution would certainly save a lot of time for teachers who need to use parts of the research papers for their digitally oriented lectures.

Fortunately, there is a company in Canada that recently published an online PDF to PowerPoint converter, that quickly transfers your PDFs into editable PPT files which you can later work on and refurbish. It’s really simple to use and you can do so by following the three step tutorial below:
