  15. 15. Explaining the Design Elements At the start of this assignment for this class, I was not overly optimistic or excited. I personally do not enjoy most PowerPoint (PPT) presentations and I rarely create them on my own. However, when I learned about the assertion-evidence model for creating PPTs and I viewed a couple of examples, I was automatically intrigued. This model gives users a way to create PPT presentations in a way that captivates the audience and gives them something to remember. It is informative for the viewer, rather than a slide of notes and talking points for the presenter (Crivaro, 2009). In the assertion-evidence model, the PPT creator presents an assertion in the form of a statement as the focal point of each slide. The evidence to back up that assertion is then presented in a visually stimulating way. Alley (2009) asserted that retention of information is increased when presented in this manner as opposed to the traditional design of PPT slides. Explanation of Slides Six and Fourteen I used the assertion-evidence model by first deciding upon the assertion that I wanted to present for each slide. After creating the assertion statement, I displayed evidence to support that assertion using stimulating visuals. Two excellent examples of my use of this technique appear on slides six and fourteen. On slide six, my assertion is that only 7% of Lodi Unified School District (LUSD) teachers report having had professional development that prepared them to use educational technology to a moderate or major extent in the classroom. To support that assertion I used the powerful visual evidence of a bar graph depicting LUSD's 7% compared to the nation's 60%. By presenting this image as a bar graph I can show the striking disparity between our levels of professional development and those experienced across the nation. Clearly we must improve in this area. On slide fourteen I assert that cyberbullying can be very damaging and that our students need to know about it. I chose to use an image of a young girl who is clearly distraught due to the words that are being used to describe her via text bubbles. Holfeld and Grabe (2012) reported that 64% of children reported that they were victims of cyberbullying and 60% of children reported that they have witnessed some form of cyberbullying. Often times, cyberbullying is even more hurtful that physical bullying because the perpetrator feels even more powerful behind the perceived
  16. 16. anonymity of technology. My decision to use this particular image for this assertion was two-fold. First, I wanted to truly shock my audience with the image and the hurtful words it contained. My intent was to make it somewhat painful for the viewer so that they could begin to relate to the pain likely experienced by a cyberbully victim. Second, I used the image specifically because the hurtful words listed look like they were produced during a cell-phone texting conversation. I want my audience to realize, that although cyber-bullying exists on the internet, it also exists in many other formats as well. Not only can bullies spread their fear via the net on web pages, blogs, email, and chat-rooms, they can also use cell-phones with the ability to transmit text, photo, and video messages. When LUSD instructs students on the Children's Internet Protection Act (CIPA) it must address cyberbullying as well as it is a form of communication that can be harmful to minors. Conclusion When comparing LUSD to the rest of the United States, it becomes evident that my district is lacking in two specific areas; student to computer ratios and professional development opportunities for teachers. Providing increased professional development will provide teachers with a better understanding of how to teach information literacy and the importance of CIPA regulations as well as provide a foundation in technology that is much needed in today's society. In addition, while preparing this PPT, I effectively used the assertion-evidence model to inform my audience of the areas in which LUSD needs to concentrate their resources in order to effectively supplement the measures that are already being put into place in the area of educational technology. If LUSD concentrates its efforts on improving the amount of hardware that is available to students, as well as increasing professional development opportunities, then its students will be better prepared for the future in this technological age.
