  • 2. Navigate your way through the Technology Toolbox! The Home page is like a Table of Contents. Each chapter is linked so that if you click on it, the slideshow will jump directly to that section. The action buttons at the bottom of the screen can also help you move through the Technology Toolbox. Clicking on the left arrow takes you to the previous slide, the home icon takes you back to the first slide to use the table of contents, and the right arrow takes you to the next slide.
  • 3. What is WMS Technology Toolbox?
    • Just like a handyman’s toolbox, your technology toolbox contains the tools you need to solve problems.
    • WMS Technology Toolbox is your place for technology tips and tricks that you can add to help you with integrating technology into instruction.
  • 4. Intro to PowerPoint
    • PowerPoint is presentation software that allows you to create slides, handouts, notes, and outlines.
    • It can be found on the application menu, under the Microsoft Office tab.
    • Instructions in this presentation will be for PowerPoint 2003 since that’s what we have at school. Check out for 2007 tutorials.
  • 5. PowerPoint for Beginners
    • Typical Beginners have a knowledge of how to adjust the slide layout, input information, add slides, add pictures, and add music or sounds.
    • Most of the tools found in PowerPoint are similar to those found in Word. Most beginners are able to add shapes, lines, word art, and change text colors just like in Word.
  • 6. Refresher for Beginners
    • Slide Layout – Click on Format, Slide Layout, then select what type of slide you want to use
    • Add a New Slide – Click on Insert, New Slide
    • Add Pictures – Click on Insert, Pictures, then choose clip art or from file. Pictures are also easily copied and pasted into Power Point.
    • Add Music or Sound Effects – Click on Insert, Movies and Sounds, then choose sound from clip organizer for clip art sounds or from file.
    • Motion Clips – Click on Insert, Movies and Sounds, movie from clip organizer
  • 7. Screenshot of Slide Layout Options
  • 8. Intermediate Power Point Skills
    • Backgrounds and Slide Designs
    • Slide Transitions
    • Custom Animations
  • 9. Backgrounds
    • There are multiple ways to do backgrounds in Power Point. Start by clicking on Format, Background.
    • Then a box will come up. From there you can choose a color, or choose more colors and select the color you want.
    • The box allows you to choose to preview the background, apply to the selected slide, or apply to all slides.
  • 10. Screenshot of Background Options
  • 11. Backgrounds
    • The other choice in the box is fill effects.
    • Selecting fill effects gives options to blend multiple colors and create backgrounds shaded from different directions
    • Also under fill effects, you can select the textures tab, patterns tab, or picture tab. Each of these tabs gives more options for adding backgrounds.
  • 12. Screenshot of Fill Effects Options
  • 13. Slide Designs
    • Slide Designs are pre-made backgrounds.
    • To use them, click on Format, Slide Design. Again, a box will open to the right giving you choices of slide designs. Be sure to use the drop down box (gray arrow) to apply to selected slide or apply to all slides.
    • After applying a slide design, double-check your slide because slide designs often change text color, text position, and can hide graphics.
  • 14. Screenshot of Slide Design Options
  • 15. Slide Transitions
    • Slide Transitions allow you to add an effect when moving from one slide to the next. To start, Click on Slide Show, Slide Transitions.
    • Choose a transition at the top right of the screen. It will automatically preview your selection. By clicking on a transition, you have added it to your slide. The option to apply to all slides is at the bottom right of the screen.
  • 16. Screenshot of Slide Transitions
  • 17. Slide Transitions
    • Once you have selected a slide transition, then select the timing. On the right side of the screen, you have the option to choose on click or automatically after…
    • On Click will advance the slide show when the mouse is left clicked, or the spacebar, right arrow, or enter key is pressed.
    • Automatically after… allows you to set each slide to advance after a selected amount of time.
  • 18. Custom Animations
    • Click on Slide Show, Custom Animations
    • Click on what you would like to animate, then click Add Effect on the upper right side of the screen
    • Then choose from Entrance, Emphasis, Exit, or Motion Path. Entrance effects are those most commonly used. Entrance effects allow you to bring words, pictures, and sounds onto the screen when you want them to. This can control the audience’s focal point and pacing.
  • 19. Custom Animation Order
    • After you have added several custom animations on one slide, you will notice that they line up with a number order on the right. To adjust this order, click and drag each number animation to the order you want it to appear.
  • 20. Custom Animation Timing
    • Similar to the timing features in slide transitions, it allows you to choose to advance each animation On Click, With Previous, or After Previous.
    • With Previous starts the animation at the same time as the one before it, while After Previous starts the animation immediately following the one before it.
  • 21. How is this helpful with instruction?
    • More engaging for students
    • Models use of technology for students
    • Warm-Ups – use animations to put up question and then reveal answer
    • Class Notes – use animations for cloze style notes
    • Insert pictures, charts, or diagrams
    • Use custom animations, colored fonts, arrows, or motion clips to add emphasis to major points of instruction.
  • 22. Closing Thoughts
    • A handyman may not use his wrench or hammer everyday, but they are still good to have for when the situation arises. Not every tip found in the technology toolbox will be useful on a daily basis, but adding these tools will help you when the time comes.
