The assignments help students learn to synthesize large amounts of information into a clear, concise format; bring people, places, and ideas to life with pictures and sounds; and spark students’ interest and creativity. - full Boston Globe article here.

I'm in favor of enabling people to express themselves with graphics as well as words.

PowerPoint can be a crutch, but blaming bad presentations on PowerPoint is like blaming conterfeit on fountain pens.
