Classroom lectures, or presentations, are symbolic of traditonal education. They often involve an instructor who acts as the sage on the stage, and delivers content to students as the students write down the information in their notebooks. Although in today's digital age we have the tools and technology to transform the way we teach, the classroom lecture, if used sparingly, can be a valuable asset. Keynote can help to improve these presentations.
