For the last month our class has been using iPads and an app called Idea Flight that is a presentation app. We made a presentation through Google Docs and put it as an iPad presentation in Idea Flight. Personally I used Idea Flight for presenting 2 presentations. The first presentation was on the Bill of Rights and then we split into groups and did one on James Madison. We took 4 iPads and everyone was an iPad presenter and each had one fourth of a picture. We combined the iPads to make one whole picture.
Our teacher used it for presentations, too. The major one he did was about a 50 slide presentation about the REAL history of Thanksgiving.
It was good how when you are the pilot you control the presentation and lock everyone into the spot you are at in the presentation. I know the original thought for Idea Flight was designed to just display a presentation. But Conde Nast should incorporate a way to make your presentations right on Idea Flight. Also, I don’t believe you can put videos on the slides so a way to do that would be great. I don’t know if this has something to do with the iPad itself or the wireless connection or Idea Flight but one of our ideas as a group was to basically make a flip book. We would line up all of the pictures and swipe through the presentation so it looks like a movie or Stop Action Animation. But with many slides quickly swiping would cause the presentation to have a delay, lag, or just skip slides completely. Again I don’t know what causes that but I figured I would add it anyway. I think overall, the Idea Flight App is a great presentation tool for teachers and students alike and schools and businesses will continue to buy and use it.
