Introduction http://eglobiotraining.com/ Slide presentation software such as PowerPoint has become an ingrained part of many instructionalsettings, particularly in large classes and in courses more geared toward information exchange than skill development.

  8. 8. Positive approaches for using PowerPoint as a Presentation tool. http://eglobiotraining.com/ This single presentation about the anatomy of the human eye has been rewritten in three different ways: Text-heavy: this version offers complete phrases and a comprehensive recording in words of the material. The text-heavy version can be used as the lecturers speaking notes, and doubles as student notes that can be made available for download either before or after the lecture has taken place. If the information can be accessed elsewhere, such as a textbook, it may be preferable to avoid a text- heavy approach, which many students find disengaging during the delivery. Some images: this version sacrifices some of the completeness of the material to create space for accompanying images. The mixed approach appeals to more visual learners while keeping some lecture notes visible, though perhaps in a more abbreviated format. This is a common mode of delivery in large classes. However, there are still some challenges. There is enough material already present in text format that some students may feel obliged to write it all down in their own notes, thus paying less attention to the verbal lecture. Conversely, if the slides are available for download, some students may be able to eschew note-taking in class, yet be tempted to consider these fragmentary notes sufficient for studying for exams.
  9. 9. Use of Powerpoint in lessons. http://eglobiotraining.com/ Classroom response systems can improve students learning by engaging them actively in the learningprocess. Instructors can employ the systems to gather individual responses from students or to gather anonymous feedback. It is possible to use the technology to give quizzes and tests, to takeattendance, and to quantify class participation. Someof the systems provide game formats that encourage debate and team competition. Reports are typicallyexported to Excel for upload to the instructors grade book

  12. 12. PowerPoint as a worksheet. http://eglobiotraining.com/ Instructors who do not have sufficient photocopyingopportunities in their departments may be less likely to use paper worksheets with their students, especially in large classes. PowerPoint offers the ability to approximate worksheets toillustrate processes or to provide "worked examples" that shows problem-solving step-by-step. One valuable technique is to first demonstrate a process or problem on one slide, then ask students to workon a similar problem revealed on the next slide, usingtheir own paper rather than worksheets handed out.

  14. 14. Effective use of PowerPoint in Presentations. http://eglobiotraining.com/ it is a PowerPoint that anyone can use.u can draw pictures with it....MS PowerPoint is a software application that has replaced 35mm slide shows of the past. One creates this presentation tool by creating a series of horizontally formatted "slides". Each slide is created by putting a number of "placeholders" on each slide. These placeholders can be formatted to any size and hold either text or graphics. One can then add "special effects" for each placeholder, such as fly ins, fly outs, etc. to add interest and "sizzle" to the presentation. Just as in many Microsoft applications, the number of features is overwhelming and the average PowerPoint user most likely does not take the time to learn how best to use them. For more advanced uses, Adobe Flash and other applications can be used to add customized special effects and interactivity. When using PowerPoint, it is important to remember that the "slide show" is a presentation tool, and not the presentation itself. Learning how to use this application well is not synonymous with being a good presenter.

  16. 16. PowerPoint is effective in any field. http://eglobiotraining.com/ Supporters say that the ease of use of presentation software can save a lot of time for people who otherwise would have used other types of visual aid— hand-drawn or mechanically typeset slides, blackboards or whiteboards, or overhead projections. Ease of use also encourages those who otherwise would not have used visual aids, or would not have given a presentation at all, to make presentations. As PowerPoints style, animation, and multimedia abilities have become more sophisticated, and as the application has generally made it easier to produce presentations (even to the point of having an "AutoContent Wizard" (discontinued in PowerPoint 2007) suggesting a structure for a presentation), the difference in needs and desires of presenters and audiences has become more noticeable. The benefit of PowerPoint is continually debated, though most people believe that the benefit may be to present structural presentations to business workers, such as Raytheon Elcan does. Its use in classroom lectures has influenced investigations of PowerPoint’s effects on student performance in comparison to lectures based on overhead projectors, traditional lectures, and online lectures. Not only is it a useful tool for introductory lectures, but it also has many functions that allow for review games, especially in the younger grades. There are no compelling results to prove or disprove that PowerPoint is more effective for learner retention than traditional presentation methods. The effect on audiences of poor PowerPoint presentations has been described as PowerPoint hell.

  18. 18. Effective use of PowerPoint. http://eglobiotraining.com/ PowerPoint, when displayed via a projector, is a useful tool for showing audiences things that enhance what the speaker is saying. It is a useful tool forillustrating the content of a speech, such as by showing photos, graphs, charts, maps, etc., or by highlighting certain text from a speech, such as quotations or major ideas. It should not be used as a slide-show outline of what the speaker is telling the audience.
