  • 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 poll

    In an emergency during your presentation, if the poll isn&apos;t showing, navigate to this link in your web browser:

    http://www.polleverywhere.com/free_text_polls/MTQzODY2NDExNQIf you like, you can use this slide as a template for your own voting slides. You might use a slide like this if you feel your audience would benefit from the picture showing a text message on a phone.

    34. 34. Design Strategies: <br />According to Patrick (me!)<br />28<br />
    35. 35. 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 />
    36. 36. 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 />
