  • Let’s start out with “Why do Presentations need a Make-Over?”- Give me one sentence or a few keywords that describe the reason you feel that presentations (PowerPoints) need a make-over”, Why do they need to look and feel differently than the ones made 5-10-15 years ago. In Presentation Zen Design, Garr Reynolds says that we live in times where Design and Visual Communication skills are increasingly important and valued.”He continues that “we should not focus on the tools and software, but the principles and elements of visual communication that lead to better design”. Daniel Pink in “The Whole New Mind” designates “Design” as one of the six senses that will help develop this whole new mind. We need to understand that a product is not about function alone, but how it can be emotionally engaging.
  • Audience is there to listen to you, not to read your slides!!! In fact, the audience is also not there to HAVE YOU read the slides to you!! So this slide you are seeing is one of the reasons for the so calledDeath by PowerPoint
  • “Death by PowerPoint is a criticism of slide-based presentations referring to a state of boredom and fatigue induced by information overload during presentations.
  • It is a fact that we remember better visual information than written one.
  • Multi-media literacy is an important skill for learning,teaching and communicating ideas
  • Hear a piece of information and three days later you’ll remember 10% of it. Add a picture and you’ll remember 65%.“UV radiation damages your DNA, setting you up for possible skin cancer and suppressing immunity. But your skin does try to fight back. As soon as you're exposed to UV radiation, cells called melanocytes release melanin pigment that blocks UV rays-in the form of a tan that can reflect UV light. You've heard it before, but it bears repeating: To prevent burns, use a sunscreen that blocks both UVA and UVB rays, and reapply often.

  • Adapted from Bill Sheskey (p.197) in Curriculum21 (ASCD, 2010) by Heidi Hayes JacobsPhotogfraphs give an emotional connection.If you have children and
  • No more than two different fontsNo conflicting colors, use complimentary colors
  • Photographs give an emotional connection to the content/informationiStockphotos.com starting at $1Stock.xchnge- Flickr- CCWikipedia- CC and public domain
  • Analogies- Similarity in some respects between things that are otherwise dissimilar. A comparison based on such similarity.) Metaphors are great for cementing in people's minds new or difficult abstract concepts, because they relate the concepts to more concrete, everyday things they are familiar with.Use- Metaphorical images- most concepts don’t have a literal imageryExample. Benefits of Web 2.0 / social media tools is like a GardenYour set of tools are the platform on which you will better enable social learning- soil, seeding, watering, weeding, pruning, gardeners, master gardener, harvesting, and organic

  • Garr Reynolds on Presentation Zen.com says:The quote may be a springboard into the topic or serve as support or reinforcement for the particular point I'm making. conclusions are much more credible when I back them up with great sources,TomPeters says: Use Good quotes from the field.

  • Choose quality images images for proportions and empty spaces, isolated on black or white.Four basics of effective graphic design: As mentioned in Presentation Zen, The non-Designers’ Design book by Robin Williams and The Whole New Mind by Daniel Pink. ContrastRepetitionAlignmentProximity
  • Contrast: Means difference. If the elements (type, color, size, line thickness, shapes, space) are not the same, then make them VERY different.
  • Repetition:Repeating visual elements “helps develop the organization and strengthens the unity”
  • Alignment- Connect elements visually- consider Rules of third
  • What is the Rule of Thirds?The basic principle behind the rule of thirds is to imagine breaking an image down into thirds (both horizontally and vertically) so that you have 9 parts. it also gives you four ‘lines’ that are also useful positions for elements in your photo.The theory is that if you place points of interest in the intersections or along the lines that your photo becomes more balanced and will enable a viewer of the image to interact with it more naturally.
  • Proximity: Elements that are intellectually connected should be visually connected.
  • A few techniques…

  • Bleed images off the edge- gives the illusion that the slide is bigger than it is. Part of the subject in the image runs off the screen
  • Bleed images off the edge- gives the illusion that the slide is bigger than it is. Part of the subject in the image runs off the screen
  • Reframing or adjusting the composition of an original photograph.It can bring out details that without cropping would not be visible or stand out. It changes the image to better suit your needs.
  • Traditional Literacy matters, but Visual Literacy is becoming more and more important. Garr Reynolds in “Presentation Zen Design” says:“ Visual Literacy has entered the panoply required for communication in this century”
