  2. 2. Navigate your way through the Technology Toolbox! The Home page is like a Table of Contents. Each chapter is linked so that if you click on it, the slideshow will jump directly to that section. The action buttons at the bottom of the screen can also help you move through the Technology Toolbox. Clicking on the left arrow takes you to the previous slide, the home icon takes you back to the first slide to use the table of contents, and the right arrow takes you to the next slide.
  3. 3. What is WMS Technology Toolbox? <ul><li>Just like a handyman’s toolbox, your technology toolbox contains the tools you need to solve problems. </li></ul><ul><li>WMS Technology Toolbox is your place for technology tips and tricks that you can add to help you with integrating technology into instruction. </li></ul>
  4. 4. Intro to PowerPoint <ul><li>PowerPoint is presentation software that allows you to create slides, handouts, notes, and outlines. </li></ul><ul><li>It can be found on the application menu, under the Microsoft Office tab. </li></ul><ul><li>Instructions in this presentation will be for PowerPoint 2003 since that’s what we have at school. Check out for 2007 tutorials. </li></ul>
  5. 5. Advanced Power Point Skills <ul><li>Insert Movies </li></ul><ul><li>Get music to play throughout slide or show </li></ul><ul><li>Loop show for continuous play </li></ul><ul><li>Action Settings </li></ul><ul><li>Action Buttons </li></ul>
  6. 6. Insert Movies <ul><li>The most frequently asked question I received from the first edition of the “Toolbox” was on how to insert videos into a PowerPoint. </li></ul><ul><li>Go to Insert, Movies and Sounds, Movie from File </li></ul><ul><li>Then select the movie that you have saved in your file. </li></ul>
  7. 7. <ul><li>It should embed the movie into your slide. A box will appear and ask if you want the movie to play automatically or when clicked. I usually select automatically and then control the timing with custom animations. Once you have your video into your PowerPoint you can adjust the size, position, etc. </li></ul>
  8. 8. Insert Movies <ul><li>These videos will not have an embeddable player so you won’t be able to fast forward, etc. The movie will stop if you hit the esc key. </li></ul><ul><li>These videos cannot be streamed. If you want to embed a video from Discovery Streaming, TeacherTube, etc. you will need to download it to your file or flash drive first. </li></ul>
  9. 9. Music <ul><li>Adding music or sound effects to a slideshow can add excitement and creativity. </li></ul><ul><li>Go to Insert, Movies and Sounds, choose sound from file or sound from clip organizer (for clip art sound effects). When you select your music, it will ask if you want it to play automatically or when clicked just like it did for movies. </li></ul><ul><li>I recommend always choosing automatically for music. </li></ul>
  10. 10. How can I get my music to play throughout the slide or show? After you insert the music, go to your custom animations. Set your music to play in the order you want. Then right click on the music in the animations tab and go to Effect Options.
  11. 11. <ul><li>Then use Effect Options to set up the start time and stop time for your music. The timing tab will allow you to delay the start. The sound settings tab allows you to check a box that will hide the sound icon in your presentation. </li></ul>
  12. 12. Loop Show <ul><li>At Back to School Night, many teachers set up a PowerPoint to play continuously while parents mingled during the open house. </li></ul><ul><li>To do this click on Slide Show, Set Up Show, and check the box for loop continuously until esc. </li></ul>
  13. 13. Action Settings <ul><li>Click here to watch a screencast tutorial on how to use Action Settings </li></ul>
  14. 14. Action Buttons <ul><li>Click here to watch a screencast tutorial on how to use Action Buttons </li></ul>

  16. 16. How is this helpful with instruction? <ul><li>More engaging for students </li></ul><ul><li>Models use of technology for students </li></ul><ul><li>Webquests and Interactive lessons for students </li></ul><ul><li>Play video clips, sound effects, speech clips, etc. directly from one place </li></ul>
  17. 17. Closing Thoughts <ul><li>A handyman may not use his wrench or hammer everyday, but they are still good to have for when the situation arises. Not every tip found in the technology toolbox will be useful on a daily basis, but adding these tools will help you when the time comes. </li></ul><ul><li>If you have any questions, would like further assistance, or would like to collaborate with me on an assignment integrating technology, please contact me </li></ul><ul><li>If there is something you would like me to cover in a future edition of WMS Technology Toolbox, please let me know that also. </li></ul>
