  12. 12. PowerPoint Pointers What are the rules?
  13. 13. Things to Consider In PP <ul><li>Presenting to the TV Generation </li></ul><ul><li>State presentation's objective in one simple sentence. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Don't skimp on pictures--each one paints a thousand words. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Keep presentations moving along--one idea at a time. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Use color. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Consider it a compliment if people say presentation is too short. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>page 1 </li></ul>
  14. 14. Things to Consider In PP <ul><li>Creating the Outline (storyboard) </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Organize flow of major thoughts and sub-points. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Keep text short and simple. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Use consistent grammatical structure. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Remove every unnecessary word. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Write to be heard. Make sure the material makes sense when you read it aloud. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>page 2 </li></ul>
  15. 15. Things to Consider In PP <ul><li>Backgrounds </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Only use one per presentation. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>For interest, add a subtle graphic and use a background with a graduated color. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Remember the correct color selection </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Be careful of large images </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Keep it simple </li></ul></ul><ul><li>page 3 </li></ul>
  16. 16. Things to Consider In PP <ul><li>Type </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Keep it simple and consistent. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Use at most two fonts per presentation. Stick with one, if possible. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Use bold type to improve readability. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Use big type. Body text 18-22 points. Subtitles 24-28 points. Headlines 36 or more </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Check readability during development by stepping back 5-6 feet from you monitor. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>page 4 </li></ul>
  17. 17. Things to Consider In PP <ul><li>Drop shadows can help text stand out from the background. </li></ul><ul><li>Provide space between the lines. Increase the &quot;line spacing&quot; and/or &quot;paragraph spacing&quot; so that the text is not too tightly packed. The viewer needs help going from the end of one line to the beginning of the next without getting lost. </li></ul><ul><li>Use bullets, but consider using something other than a round dot. Some fonts offer alternatives. </li></ul><ul><li>Only consider using all uppercase for a title if the title is one or two words. </li></ul><ul><li>page 5 </li></ul>
  18. 18. Things to Consider In PP <ul><li>Color </li></ul><ul><ul><li>In a dark room, use light type on a dark background. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>In a well-lighted room, use dark type on a light background. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Be aware of human reactions to various colors. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>page 6 </li></ul>
  19. 19. Things to Consider In PP <ul><li>Red : Danger, Stop </li></ul><ul><li>Dark Blue : Dignity </li></ul><ul><li>Light blue : Cool energy, Calm </li></ul><ul><li>Gray : Neutral, Mature </li></ul><ul><li>Purple : Royal, mystery </li></ul><ul><li>Green : Life, Health </li></ul><ul><li>Orange /Yellow : Outgoing, Sunny </li></ul><ul><li>White: (Use only for text on a dark background) </li></ul><ul><li>Black : Serious </li></ul><ul><li>page 7 </li></ul>
  20. 20. Things to Consider In PP <ul><li>Color </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Contrasting colors help the eye focus. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Colors classify information. Be consistent. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>No more than 4-5 colors on a chart. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>No more than 10 colors in a presentation. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Subtle colors for large graphics. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Bright colors for small graphics. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>page 8 </li></ul>
  21. 21. Things to Consider In PP <ul><li>Match the presentation to the projector </li></ul><ul><ul><li>If the projector is 640x480 (standard VGA), make sure your presentation is the same size. If not, the right side and bottom of the presentation will be clipped from the screen. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>page 9 </li></ul></ul>
  22. 22. Things to Consider In PP <ul><li>Toggle the lights </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Use PowerPoint to explain a concept, then turn on the lights to discuss the concept. Intersperse active learning activities with the usually passive PowerPoint activity. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>page 10 </li></ul></ul>
  23. 23. Things to Consider In PP <ul><li>Use dissolves judiciously </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Find a dissolve and stick with it. If the viewer is aware of the dissolve, they are distracted from the content, and the content is king. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Use one dissolve for transitions within a section and one dissolve when moving on to another major section. Vary the effect and/or the speed. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>page 11 </li></ul></ul>
  24. 24. Things to Consider In PP <ul><li>Display bullet lists in steps </li></ul><ul><ul><li>If you have a slide with a number of points, make each point appear in turn, reducing the intensity of the other points as you move on. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Select the bullet , go to the menu named &quot;Slide show&quot; and select &quot;Custom animation.&quot; </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>page 12 </li></ul></ul>
  25. 25. Things to Consider In PP <ul><li>Have a &quot;Plan B&quot; ready </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Be prepared for the case where you can't show the presentation. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>bring a printout </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>overhead transparencies </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Other Activities </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>page 13 </li></ul></ul></ul>

  1. A particular slide catching your eye?

    Clipping is a handy way to collect important slides you want to go back to later.
