  • The initial purpose of PowerPoint was to serve as presentation tool in the Business World. It was first created by Forethought Inc in 1987. The first program was called Presenter and was created for the Macintosh II computer. Forethought was then bought by Microsoft, which is now considered a wise investment, and Presenter was now introduced as PowerPoint 1.0. This all within a 1 year period. The alternative options that existed before PowerPoint were overhead and transparency presentations, colored slides that required a dark room, and costly multimedia presentations that included audio and illusions of motion. However this last one was not very popular and was only used for important presentations or to impress. Finally, in 1992 PowerPoint consolidated all three key features just mentioned giving the presenter absolute control of his presentation. An eventually innovated into what we presently experienced with PowerPoint
  • Non-technology oriented environment covers a lot of areas of technology implementation, but making a connection with PowerPoint. I want to point out Administrator’s involvement. And you might ask yourself, How much involvement would administrators need in the use of PPT in the classroom? The point to address here is not how much involvement they have, but whether they do it or not. A lot of administrators are overlooking not only the use of PPT in the classroom, but technology in general for that matter because they don’t feel that sense of urgency to use it. So, consequently, teachers are not motivated and do not have the right attitude when using PPT in the class. Also, they lack the knowledge and skills and are hesitant to using PPT because they just don’t feel capable of doing it effectively. Finally, when they do get to use PPT, many times it is used ineffectively. The end result might be frustration from teachers and doubt from students. However, this happens when there is no time investment to produce a good presentation.
  • Although research on the benefits of PPT in the classroom is inconclusive, the positive outweighs the negatives when used effectively. An example on this is student engagement. Most research do agree on increased student engagement when using PPT, due to a variety of applications which will be reviewed later in the presentation. It is a very user friendly tool, with some commitment and motivation, teachers and students can quickly learn basic applications of PPT. Teachers or students don’t have to have very high skills in technology, even in 3 rd grade students are creating presentations with PPT. Multiple uses include creation of slides, print out and handouts, picture presentation, or flashcards to name a few. The use of PPT also entitles addressing 21 st century skills such as critical thinking, problem solving, collaborations, and using the computer and PPT itself allow the practice for technology. Although its first intent was to be a tool in the business world, it is a very useful tool in education for teachers when presenting and a useful for tools to engage and participate in the classroom.
