  • PowerPointWhy are we discussing PowerPoint?Millions of PowerPoint are given each day.For many powerpoint=presentation.
  • Press F5 or enter presentation mode to view the pollTime constraints – when you have limited time to cover a topic, presentation software can help you present the material quickly and succinctly, and can help you make sure you address all of the points you want to coverDevelopment efficiency – presentation software is easy to use and learn how to use; once you have built a presentation, it is easy to repurpose and reuse slides for a new presentation; once you create the slideshow, you automatically can also produce a handout for the audience and a script for yourselfTransferability – PowerPoint is everywhere, on every computer, so you don’t have to worry about technology support issues during delivery or when distributing to othersProfessional credibility – the audience does not perceive you as an expert unless you have prepared a technology-enhanced presentationAudience expectations – the audience is used to the structure of a presentation slideshow, having experienced so many of them; if you are delivering a presentation, the audience expects you to support what you are saying with a slideshow (and expects a handout of the slides)

    • 29. Design Strategies: <br />According to Patrick (me!)<br />23<br />
    • 30. PowerPoint should support objectives <br />Avoid PowerPoint templates<br />Avoid using more than one level of bullets<br />Less is better: less words & less slides<br />Avoid distracting clip art/unrelated images<br />Avoid distracting slide transitions<br />Use CARP to improve design<br />Avoid using all CAPS<br />Leverage multimedia: visual & audio when appropriate<br />Don’t let PowerPoint control your presentation<br />
    • 31. We need to think of ways to get students to interact and actively engage in their learning.<br />MS Producer is a good tool if you want to add audio and video to your slides.<br />It is also free!<br />Articulate Presenter offers a seamless (but expensive) alternative to Producer. Also has quiz making tools.<br />Impatica is an easy tool to covert PowerPoint slides for the web.<br />PowerPoint can used to create learning games to engage students online<br />Digital stories can be an effective way to build teacher presence online.<br />Move Beyond Static Text<br />Interactivity<br />MS Producer for PPT<br />Articulate Presenter<br />Impatica for PowerPoint<br />Games<br />Digital Stories<br />
