Transcript

  • 1. How to Use PowerPoint Effectively
  • 2. Start With the Main Goal <ul><li>It is important to make sure that your students know what the objectives are for the presentation. </li></ul><ul><li>In this particular presentation we will be reviewing basic tips for effectively using PowerPoint. </li></ul><ul><li>The following topics will include appropriate formatting and slide presentation skills with reference to use in the classroom. </li></ul>
  • 3. Use a big enough font <ul><li>Any less than a 24 point font size is too small to read recognizably. </li></ul><ul><li>28 or 32 point size is preferred for text and 38 to 44 point size for titles. </li></ul><ul><li>If a small font size is used (such as for graphs), make sure the group is close enough to see the projection clearly. </li></ul>
  • 4. Use Contrasting Colors <ul><li>In order to see the slides clearly, there must be enough contrast. </li></ul><ul><li>Some people prefer to use a light background with darker text. </li></ul><ul><li>You can also use a dark background with light text such as a blue background with white text. </li></ul>
  • 5. Get to the Point <ul><li>Using short phrases and sentences are a great way to convey the main idea and get your point across. </li></ul><ul><li>If the sentences become too long, it can be difficult to follow and can take away from the overall presentation. </li></ul>
  • 6. Use Simple Transitions <ul><li>Too many different transitions will be distracting to your students and will take the attention away from the subject. </li></ul><ul><li>Some transitions take a long amount of time to complete and can slow down the whole presentation. </li></ul>
  • 7. Use Graphics Correctly <ul><li>Graphics can be a great eye-catcher or aid in demonstrating a point. </li></ul><ul><li>Too many graphics used just to be showy distract from the teacher and the subject matter. </li></ul>
  • 8. Keep it Easy to Read <ul><li>Using bold , italics , or underlining can be distracting if used too much. </li></ul><ul><li>Keep the font size fairly uniform in each slide - huge font in the middle of a sentence cancels out the rest of the message. </li></ul><ul><li>Keep the same font style for the whole slide. </li></ul>
  • 9. Some Ideas for the Classroom <ul><li>Students can use PowerPoint to assist their oral reports. This can make it less stressful and go smoother for them. </li></ul><ul><li>Teachers can use PowerPoint presentations to outline a plot, show steps of a math problem, or review material. </li></ul><ul><li>PowerPoint is a great way to show videos or organize photos of class projects and trips </li></ul>
