Amount of Text: “Text should be limited to a general 6X6 rule: 6
words across or six bullets down” (10, Jukes). Too much text can weigh the students down. Main ideas should be typed while the teacher verbally fills in the rest of the idea. When teachers formulate presentations they should not only pay attention to the format of the presentation but also should also include different technology during the presentation to capitalize on each student’s individual learning styles: aural, visual, or kinesthetic .
The Visual Learner Using different video technology in your presentation can enhance the lesson
The Visual Learner Projected and non-projected visual aids help connect the visual learner with the presentation. Different projectors include: Overhead Projectors Document Cameras Digital Projectors Non-projected visuals include:
Boards (i.e. chalkboards, whiteboards, and bulletin boards)
The Kinesthetic Learner Affective Presentations to kinesthetic learners could include: Workable models Small projects Short activities
The Aural Learner For effective presentation to the aural learner, use of audio media is essential. Different audio elements including audio books (like those found at iTunes U), podcasts, and video media (including websites such as Youtube.comand) are very helpful.
