  • PowerPoint 2010

    1. 1. An Introduction
    2. 2. Building a Good Presentation Before starting, consider: Who is my audience? What do I want to communicate? What is my BIG take-away message? How do I want to organize my presentation?
    3. 3. Two Kinds of Power Points Tutorial or Notes for Later Presentation for Now You want people to view your slides as notes independently. You are giving a presentation that requires photos, graphs, and other images to support it.
    4. 4. Ways to Use Power Point In the classroom: Tutorials Games Flash cards Student presentations, projects, portfolios Personal use: Slide shows of baby photos, weddings, vacations, other life events In business: Team training Marketing plans Other presentations
    5. 5. Writing You don’t have to use just sentence fragments. You don’t have to use bullets. But please, don’t write an essay.
    6. 6. Negative Space Can help you communicate.
    7. 7. Better Than
    8. 8. Words
    9. 9. Want to see a GREAT Power Point? https://www.udemy.com/blog/best-powerpoint-presentations/
    10. 10. Common Mistakes If you’ve ever sat through a Power Point presentation, you might find that some people type all the words they’re going to say on the slide, and then they read them word for word. This is really not the point of Power Point, nor is it the point of any type of presentation! Plus, it’s really annoying to read all the words on the screen. Don’t you think so? Let me know if you disagree. It might help me make a better presentation in the future.
    11. 11. Common Mistakes • Using images to decorate your slide • Makes it look cluttered and unprofessional
    12. 12. Common Mistakes Silly transitions and animation—They look kind of…silly Remember your audience! Keep it professional, not distracting
    13. 13. And After
    14. 14. Our business Our annual revenue was $86,000 in the first year 30% of that was from the sale of our signature product, the “Mr. Fluffy” dog shampoo The remaining 70% came from sales of “Little Fluffy” puppy shampoo and doggrooming services Our largest expense was personnel Our second largest expense was manufacturing Our third largest expense was consulting services

    16. 16. Copyright Considerations What images do you have the right to use? • Images you take yourself • Clip art from Power Point • Creative Commons Images, with attribution • Check out: http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Main_Page • Images from morgueFile • Check out: http://morguefile.com/
    17. 17. Final Thoughts  Using contrasting colors instead of colors that are too similar Which of these are good ideas?  Writing exactly what you want to say on your slide  Practicing before your presentation  Using lots of pictures on every slide  Citing the sources of your images and information  Demonstrating information with graphs and photos  Using as many animations and transitions as humanly possible
