    Howtocreatea ppt Howtocreatea ppt Presentation Transcript

    • General ideas: presentation  Create a draft. Brainstorm your ideas before starting the Power Point presentation.  Ask yourself the “W” questions. What? Where? Why? When? Who?  Simplify the most important ideas you want the audience to know after the presentation.  Structure your message. Once your ideas are clear, write down key points, general contents and figure out resources you can need.  Few slides. Too many overloads people.
    • General ideas: delivery  Power Point only gives support to your oral communication.  Talk to the audience and don’t turn your back to them.  Tell some stories, anecdotes or examples. You’ll create a comfortable atmosphere.  Remember the “B” key. The screen will go blank and you can explain better.  Give detailed handouts instead of Power Point copies. Remember that you’re the presentation!
    • Design: template  Colors. Choose the most adequate template to your audience, but avoid: Shiny  Poor Bad contrast Textures Keep the background simple. Use templates with appropriate contrast and background. It is essential to make your text easy to read.
    • Design: template  Keep the color scheme consistent. Repeat certain elements throughout your presentation.  Use different ones. You can find in: http://www.powerpointtemplatespro.com http://www.presentermedia.com http://www.stickylearning.com.au/.a/6a010535c38f18970b012876d388eb970c-pi http://garr.posterous.com/though-veiled-amid-the-misty-showers-of-gray
    • Design: text  Reduce the text on your slides to a minimum. Too much information distract the audience.  Add no more than 20 - 25 slides (or 15- 20, depending on the contents, time…)  Focus your information to a maximum of 5 key points or ideas.  Use short, simple and concise sentences.  Light background with dark text is better. Keep it simple!
    • Design: font  Use a font large enough for easy reading in the back.  Arial, Tahoma and Times New Roman are advisable.  Use the most appropriates, but with different purposes.  Avoid capital letters. It’s harder for the people to understand.
    • Design: graphs and diagrams  Make certain that you need them to enhance your message.  Explain your graphs, diagrams, conceptual maps or symbols.  Clear graphs help the audience to remember the main points. Confused Clear
    • Design: graphs and diagrams Conceptual map (example) http://keepingconnections.files.wordpress.com/2008/09/e-learning2.jpg
    • Design: pictures, photos  A picture is worth than a thousand words.  Narration with images is better than text alone.  Web resources:  http://www.istockphoto.com/  http://www.flickr.com/  http://www.google.com  http://www.panoramio.com/ Not too many pictures
    • Design: Animation and clip arts  Clip arts are fun to use but only if they support or illustrate the key points.  Sometimes animations show lack of professionalism.  Two many on a page make it hard for the reader to keep the attention on the speaker.
    •  Distract the audience. Even the builds (lines of text appearing each time you click the mouse).  Several effects and transitions runs can be distracting. Focus on your message, not the technology.  Leave the fade-ins, wipes, blinds and splits to science fiction movies.  Use video and audio when appropriate.
    • Books  Atkinson, C. (2007). Beyond Bullet Points: Using Microsoft PowerPoint to Create Presentations That Inform, Motivate, and Inspire. Microsoft  Duarte, N. (2008) slide:ology: The Art and Science of Creating Great Presentations. O’reilly  Reynolds,G (2008). Presentantion Zen. Simple ideas on Presentation Design and Delivery.
