  • A slide is something visual to support your spoken presentation. You say all those words, don’t put them on the slide. If you want to be sure people go away with the full information, give a handout with it.

  • Put yourself in the audience – what’s your attention on with Bill Gates? What’s your attention on with Steve Jobs?
  • Capacity to take in information and process it is very limited. We can only process a few bits of information at a time. In a live presentation, a person is not able to control the pace. If your topic is very new, they will need more processing capacity to get it. So this amount of text ON TOP OF a speaker saying these things is overwhelming to working memory. If your intention is learning, this is deadly. Less deadly if you don’t care about them remembering, but, they will still experience overwhelm.In a presentation – person can’t control pace – they may be bored as an expert or lost as a novice – you need to try to facilitate processing as much as possible

  • Garr Reynolds Be Like Bamboo and women with flooring, yard, remembering none of the 10 points related to the bamboo metaphor
  • Be careful about existing mental models – you don’t want to evoke something that’s contrary to the objective

  • Proximity – make it clear what information goes together with space
  • Alignment – the center alignment is hard for the eye to follow – if you change one thing – stop center aligning text
  • Alternate alignment
  • Contrast – make the title and presenter info very different – here we changed sizes more, use of sans serif fonts and serif fonts; also used size differences in the title
  • Example of shape contrast and a little color contrast
