I like to use http://prezi.com/ to make presentations, I like this more than powerpoint.
As far as lessons... we just did a forced perspective digital photography project to create Impossible Pictures, where students used digital cameras, both from home and ones I had at school, to create wacky pictures... one student eating another, someone stepping on someone else, someone's head on a flower.

I love prezi too! Here are some of my fav. sites:
edu.glogster.com -make interactive posters for projects
pixlr.com -a free online photo editor, similar to Photoshop elements
befunky.com -a free online photo editor that is great for fixing blemishes and placing filters on artwork.
fotoflexer.com -a free online photo editor that is boasted as the "best of the web" and it really is.
interactimage.com/ -a free online font generator with hundreds of selections. Students can save created text as jpgs for embedding into documents etc.
graffiticreator.net/ -a free online graffiti tag generator. You can create real graffiti effects.
One of my favorite ways to introduce to students to working with digital art technology is to use a simple collage project. I have shared a digital Arcimboldo project on SmARTteacher.com here: http://www.thesmartteacher.com/exchange/resource/226/Digital_Arcimboldo_Food_Faces_Using_Free_Online_Software
