If you're using PowerPoint 2016 with Office 365, you could check out this video from Microsoft and the Presentation Guild which shows a REALLY useful use of sections when coupled with the new Zoom features which were launched last month:

@agwalsh posted an extension/clarification of the question in a different thread. Mod explained that we should keep everything in one thread, so I'll post the question and my response here as well.

Question:
>Where would I find a good explanation of how to use section headers in a Powerpoint presentation. Can they be used like Sections in Word to divide up my presentation so I can have different animations/themes in different sections or not? Thanks

My response:
Yes, you could do that with sections, but you can have different animations and themes without creating new sections as well.

 To apply a different theme to slides, select the slides* and then on the Design tab, right-click the thumbnail of the theme you want and choose Apply to Selected Slides.

 *Of course if you've created sections, you can select the section name to select all the slides in that section, which makes selecting the slides pretty easy. But you can also just select the appropriate slides as usual without creating sections.

 Applying a different theme to slides creates a new slide master based on that theme, and you can apply animation settings to that slide master.
