Haiku Deck Classroom Brings Haiku Deck Presentations to Students and Teachers

With back to school season in full swing, we couldn’t be happier to announce a brand-new offering for educators, Haiku Deck Classroom.  Over the past 4 years, we’ve seen over a hundred thousand teachers, librarians, and education technology professionals from 15,000 schools (from primary to universities) embrace Haiku Deck. They use the app for creating inspiring lessons on any topic, teaching presentation best-practices, and even running curriculum nights or staff meetings. We built Haiku Deck Classroom to bring the full power of Haiku Deck Pro to educators and students in a way that’s easy and, more importantly, affordable even for teachers on the tightest of budgets.

Haiku Deck Classroom makes all the features of Haiku Deck Pro available to educators and students, including unlimited presentation creation, advanced privacy settings, offline viewing and printing, and YouTube video embedding. The subscription applies to use of Haiku Deck’s award-winning web, iPad, and iPhone apps. Here’s a 1 minute video introduction of Haiku Deck Classroom:

    • Classroom Management Dashboard: Educators can easily add and remove students from their classroom by email address.
    • Mobile and Web-Based: Educators and students can create or view Haiku Decks on the web, iPad, or iPhone.
    • The option of Google Classroom integration: Educators who use Google Classroom may import users from and share decks directly to Google Classroom.
    • The option of using Google Sign-In: Haiku Deck now supports Google sign-in, for students without an email address.
    • Classroom Gallery: Students can share Haiku Decks to a classroom gallery, making it easy for teachers to review and evaluate work.
    • Share to LMS: Students can easily share their Haiku Decks to Classroom Management Systems like Schoology, Moodle, Blackboard, Canvas, Edmodo, and more.

4 Haiku Deck Presentations That Make Expert Use Of Embedded YouTube Videos

Many of our users already know that paid Haiku Deck subscribers have access to our new feature that lets users search for and embed YouTube videos directly in their presentations. Here are a few examples of Haiku Deck Pro users who have made great use of this new feature to enrich their presentations. Click on the images below to view the examples and look for the triangular ‘play’ button in the bottom right corner of slides that contain videos.

1. “Deadly Illusion

What we find so effective about this use of a YouTube video is the video’s ability to showcases the cause (the unrealistic expectations of women that photoshopped images create) in a way that stills or words couldn’t. It also captures interest immediately so the presenter will have an easier time arguing his/her case.

2. “The Path To Success

In The Path to Success, the author uses two videos that give unique and powerful examples injecting emotional energy at key moments in the presentation. Using multimedia to create an emotional response is shown to help make presentations more memorable.

3. “Big Hairy Audacious Goals

This is a perfect example of an embedded video which would lose almost all of its oomph if the presenter had to take the time to exit and reenter the presentation. But as a video embedded in the final slide, it offers an aesthetically satisfying brand reminder.

4. “Adolescent Stress & Anxiety
This lesson on stress and anxiety in the teenage brain includes a video from a well spoken expert on the topic, offering the presenter extra ethos and injecting  the presentation with greater meaning.
