  6. 6. ADVANTAGES (Potential benefits of using presentation graphics includes....) Engaging multiple learning styles Increasing visual impact Improving audience focus Providing annotations and highlights Analyzing and synthesizing complexities Enriching curriculum with interdisciplinary Increasing spontaneity and interactivity Increasing wonder http://eglobiotraining.com/
  7. 7. Presenters View• Using this mode of PowerPoint, your slides are projected as usual on the big screen and fill the entire space, but the computer used by the lecturer displays the slides in preview mode, with the space for notes visible at the bottom of the screen. In this fashion, lecturers can have a set of notes separate from what is displayed to the students, which has the overall effect of increasing the engagement of the presentation.http://eglobiotraining.com/
  8. 8. ChallengesAlthough there are many potential benefits to PowerPoint, thereare several issues that could create problems or disengagement:• Teacher-centered. Students often respond better when instructors have designed sessions for greater classroom interaction, such as the use of student response clickers, designing PowerPoint to facilitate case studies, or use the slides as a replacement for paper worksheets.• Lack of feedback. PowerPoint-based lectures tell you nothing about student learning. Design them to include opportunities for feedback (not simply asking if there are questions, but more actively quizzing your students). This often takes the form of listing questions, not information, on the slides themselves. http://eglobiotraining.com/
  9. 9. • Student inactivity. Slide shows do little to model how students should interact with the material on their own. Include student activities or demonstrations to overcome this, either before or after the slideshow presentation.• Potentially reductive. PowerPoint was designed to promote simple persuasive arguments. Design for critical engagement, not just for exposure to a “point.”• Presentation graphics should be about learning, not about presentation.• PowerPoint presentations should help students organize their notes, not just “be” the notes. This is a particular danger with students who grew up accustomed to receiving PowerPoint notes to study from. Some may require convincing that notes should be taken beyond what is already on the slides.http://eglobiotraining.com/

  11. 11. When light is on: EYE CONTACT: If maintaining eye contact with your students is important to you, then you may wish to keep the lights on. This also helps if you don’t want student attention focused solely on the screen. With the lights on, coupled with an effective presentation, their eyes will follow where you direct their attention. NAPPING STUDENTS: While it may be impossible to prevent some students from falling asleep in class, leaving the lights on can help tired members of your class stay awake. NOTE TAKING: If you expect your students to take a lot of notes during your lecture, then they should be able to see what they are doing. Leaving the lights on will help see what they’re writing while they listen to your lecture. PRINTING EASE: If you are planning on posting your slide on the web for your students to print out and bring to class, then consider doing them on a light/white background (and thus keep the lecture hall lights on). This way there is room for them to take notes around your slides.http://eglobiotraining.com/
  12. 12. When the light is off• PREVENTING EYESTRAIN: Staring at a bright slide for an extended amount of time is hard on the eyes. Too much brightness from the screen in addition to having the lights on can make things even worse. Try to create a comfortable viewing environment to help your students better absorb your material. A dark room makes looking at slides much easier on your students.• VISUAL DIVERSIONS: With the lights on, there is more room for students to become easily distracted by other things they may see. You may want to turn the lights off to help students focus on more easily on what you’re trying to show.• MORE EFFECTIVE MEDIA PRESENTATION If your presentation is image or media intensive, it will look much better and be much easier to see in a dark viewing environment. This is especially true for video content. http://eglobiotraining.com/

  14. 14. PowerPoint, when displayed via a projector, is auseful tool for showing audiences thingsthat enhance what the speaker is saying. It is a usefultool for illustrating the content of a speech, such asby showing photos, graphs, charts, maps, etc., or byhighlighting certain text from a speech, such asquotations or major ideas. It should not be used as aslide-show outline of what the speaker is telling theaudience. http://eglobiotraining.com/
  15. 15. Slides used in a presentation should be spare, interms of how much information is on each slide, aswell as how many slides are used. A rule of thumbis to put no more than eight lines of text on a slide,and with no more than eight to ten words per line.In most cases, less is more, so four lines of text isprobably better. Don’t display charts or graphs witha lot of information—if it’s useful for the audienceto see such things, pass them out as handouts.http://eglobiotraining.com/
  16. 16. Unless you’re an experienced designer, don’t use the transition and animation “tricks” that are built into PowerPoint, such as bouncing or flying text. By now, most people roll their eyes when they see these things, and these tricks add nothing of value to a presentation.http://eglobiotraining.com/
  17. 17. Above all, use high-contrast color schemes so thatwhatever is on your slides is readable. Unless you are atalented graphic designer, use the templates that comewith PowerPoint or Keynote, and keep it simple—highconcept design in a slide presentation doesn’t help inmost circumstances, unless you’re in the fashion ordesign fields. If you use graphics or photos, try to usethe highest quality you can find or afford—clip art andlow-resolution graphics blown up on a screen usuallydetract from a presentation. http://eglobiotraining.com/
  18. 18. Rehearse your PowerPoint presentation and not justonce. Don’t let PowerPoint get in the way of your oralpresentation, and make sure you know how it works,what sequence the slides are in, how to get through itusing someone else’s computer, etc. Make sure that youcan deliver your presentation if PowerPoint is completelyunavailable; in other words, make sure you can give yourspeech without your PowerPoint presentation. http://eglobiotraining.com/
  19. 19. Learn how to give a good speech without PowerPoint. Thistakes practice, which means giving speeches withoutPowerPoint. Believe it or not, public speaking existed beforePowerPoint, and many people remember it as being a lot betterthen than it is now. A few people use presentation software inextremely effective ways—Steve Jobs and Stanford LawProfessor Lawrence Lessig are two examples. Al Gore’s use ofKeynote in the movie “An Inconvenient Truth” was a goodmodel. But these three examples don’t look at all like the waymost people use PowerPoint. Avoiding bad PowerPoint habitsmeans, first and foremost, becoming a good public speaker. http://eglobiotraining.com/
  20. 20. There are different ways to make yourpresentation more interesting. For me, itdepends on the topic and to the audience thatwill be presented on.http://eglobiotraining.com/
