    • STOP
    • Killing Your Students with PowerPoint
  • 5. can be highly boring for your students and should only be used by authorised PowerPoint Teachers
  • 6. Warning
  • 7. PowerPoint
  • 8. It’s my duty to warn you
  • 9. How to avoid
  • 10. a Slow Death by PowerPoint
  • 11. (No students were harmed during the making of this presentation)
  • 12. The Top Cardinal Sins
  • 13. Cardinal Sin 1
  • 14. The Script
  • 15. The problem is that most people speak at
  • 16. 150 WPM
  • 17. Yet most people read at
  • 18. 250 WPM
  • 19.
    • 1. Some teachers like to put every single thing they are going to say on their slides. Although this means that you do not have to remember what to say on your slides. This makes your slides boring, text heavy and causes your students eyes to glaze over, the mobile phones come out and the fidgeting begins. They begin to wonder why they are even listening to you as they have already used up all their brain power reading ahead and drawing their own conclusions. All this before you even reach the bottom of your. . .

    • 1. Continued - first slide
    Common PowerPoint Mistakes
  • 21. Cardinal Sin 2
  • 22. Dodging Bullets
  • 23. Example
  • 24. This is a Very Important Slide
    • In case you have not understood the fact that this is a very important slide from the heading I am going to make sure that you read the information again in many different ways
    • The problem with very important slides (VIS) is that you try to get as much information on to them as possible
    • Because as we all know in teaching you can’t just say something once you have to make sure its said or shown three times in three different ways to get the same message across!
    • That way the little blighters can’t say you did not tell them
    • The sad thing is this causes Teachers to use PowerPoint's with lots of different levels and bullet points to put across the same key message (over and over again!)
      • Here it is again – I am important – read me!
        • Have you got the point yet
          • Please remember I am important too even if I am a third level bullet point
    • It does not matter how many different ways you try to cram the information in
      • Nobody is going to read it anyway
        • So it’s all pretty pointless
          • And you end up wasting your time
            • Want students to read ? Give it to them on paper! A slide is not the place to do it
    • Whoopee!
    • Phew is that it now?
  • 25. Not exactly exciting is it?

  • 50. Cardinal Sin 6

    • Businesses have benefited in the following ways:
    • Reduction in storage space and costs as materials are Just In Time (JIT)
    • Increased output as new technology and techniques allow businesses to increase production
    • Increased labour productivity as new techniques and technologies enable workers to be more productive
    • Increased quality as robots produce to a higher standard
    • Automation has decreased production down-time – no tea breaks, 24hr a day working
    • New technology is expensive
    • Can lead to redundancies
    • Demand for skilled workers increases
    • Money into education to equip the next workforce with the right skills

  • 89. Communication involves emotions
  • 90. If you can’t explain it short and simple
  • 91. Then you don’t understand it
  • 92. This is bad communication
