Today, I am not going to try to flash bells and whistles or add a lot of detail to anything we do. You will learn how to give your projects your own touch. I will give you some helpful websites that will provide you with some of those extras.
The first thing we are going to talk about is using power point or keynote to present a lesson to your own class. No more than 4 points on a slide. Have each point come in separately to avoid students trying to write everything rather than listening to you. You can add pictures so easily and have them enter, too. Let’s do a slide in powerpoint.
You will see a menu like this one when you open keynote. You can choose a template to help you create a presentation or choose a plain white background.
Summer Workshop For Macs Keynote1
Summer Workshop <ul><li>Dixie Academy </li></ul>
Using Presentations to Teach <ul><li>It is best to list no more than four points on a slide. </li></ul>It is best to have each point enter separately.
The keynote program Looks like a Speaker’s Podium Double click on this icon to open the program.
The TOOLBAR <ul><li>This icon is the most important one you’ll use right away. It is called the inspector. </li></ul>
Open The Inspector <ul><li>The arrow is pointing to document settings. It looks like a piece of paper. </li></ul>It allows you to set up details in your show. I never even use this because the default settings are fine. You may need to use it to set music to the background of a slide show because there is an audio option under this heading.
The next icon in the inspector looks like a frame. <ul><li>You will use this button often because it allows you transition between slides. </li></ul>The transition I am going to use here is called reflection.
The next icon in the inspector is shaped like a diamond with motion lines. <ul><li>This is the “Build” button. You can make your words or pictures build in or build out! I am going to build the word Dixie using my favorite build “Sparkle”! </li></ul>
The next button in the inspector is the Text button & it looks like a “T”. <ul><li>I use this button to help center text on the page, create columns and use bullets. </li></ul>
The next button in the inspector is the graphic button. It looks like a circle in front of a square. <ul><li>This button is used to fill the text box with a background color & create a border. </li></ul>
The next button in the inspector is the hyperlink button & it looks like an arrow. <ul><li>This button allows you to insert a live link into your presentation. </li></ul>www.dixieacademy.net
The final button in the inspector that I use is the Quicktime button & it allows you to place movies and graphics into your presentation. <ul><li>I set this graphic to loop and it continues to move. </li></ul>
<ul><li>Near the inspector icon, you will the other button we will talk about today. This button is the media button and its icon looks like a music note, photo and movie clip. </li></ul>
When you Click the Media icon, you will open to this menu. <ul><li>If you click audio, you will have access to your music & can insert it into your presentation. </li></ul>
If you click photos, in the media menu, you will be able to insert photos.
If you click movies in the media menu, you can easily insert a movie into your presentation.
Take advantage of the Hyperlink Button to share with students without downloading. <ul><li>http://edcommunity.apple.com/ali/story.php?itemID=12091 </li></ul>
