Transcript

  • 1. Beyond PowerPoint Using Alternative Presentation Tools
  • 2. Why go beyond PowerPoint? ● To learn new skills and tools ● To store presentation in the cloud for easy access and sharing ● To collaborate more efficiently with partners ● To add some variety and pizzazz
  • 3. Universal Design for Learning and Presentation Tools ● Using multiple means of expression helps reach students with diverse learning styles. ● Tools like Prezi can be useful for showing relationships visually
  • 4. Tips for Maximizing Accessibility ● Think about the contrast between your background and text ● Include images or charts to convey information ● Use color to highlight important terms or concepts (keeping contrast in mind) ● Provide electronic versions of presentations to students so they can adjust them to their needs
  • 5. Which presentation tool(s) do you use most?
  • 6. FREE web-based options ● Google Drive Presentations ● Zoho Show ● Prezi
  • 7. Google Drive Presentations ● ● ● ● Built into your gmail/iSpartan account Designed to be collaborative Present from web or export Upload existing presentations
  • 8. Zoho Show ● Free with account, but premium options are available ● Clean design ● Easy integration of other media ● Options for both wide-screen and regularscreen presentations ● Present from web or export ● Upload existing presentations
  • 9. Disadvantages of Zoho and Drive ● Fairly stripped down in terms of design options ● Collaborators must have accounts to access shared files ● Limited to a linear, slide-based format
  • 10. Prezi ● Dynamic and visually interesting ● Non-linear way of presenting engages audience and also makes the presentation a good option as a standalone ● Entirely web-based ● Easy integration of other media
  • 11. Disadvantages of Prezi ● Can be disorienting ● Has even more bells and whistles than PowerPoint, and it can be tempting to use them all
  • 12. Snazzy animated options PowToon GoAnimate!
  • 13. Free (or cheap) mobile apps iOS ● HaikuDeck ● Perspective Android ● Softmaker
  • 14. Final thoughts ● Different tools work for different projects ● No matter what tool you choose, keep it simple (both in design and content)
