How To Make Your Presentation Great!

  1. 1. How to make your presentation great!<br />By Emily Stevens<br />
  2. 2. Add Humor to Your Presentation!<br />-An excellent way to start your presentation is with humor. <br />- “Anecdotes & self-deprecating humor break the ice & draw the audience into your Presentation.”(Jukes)<br />
  3. 3. Different types of technology<br />Non-projected Visuals<br />Real Object<br />Models<br />Exhibits<br />Printed Materials<br />Graphics and Photographs<br />Flipcharts, Feltboards, Whiteboards and Chalkboards<br />Projected Visuals<br />Overhead Projectors<br />Digital Projectors<br />Document Cameras<br />You can use any of these technologies, and more to enhance your lessons and make learning a more fun experience. <br />
  4. 4. Make Sharing Readily Viewable<br />Be organized!<br />“Having a logical flow will help the audience follow your presentation easily”(Jukes).<br />Maintain eye contact throughout the presentation. <br />“Instead of having to turn to write on a whiteboard, using an overhead projector allows you to face the classroom while creating impromptu visual images”(Lever).<br />
  5. 5. Use “helps”<br />Many Software presentation programs come with guides that help you design different types of presentations. So, Why not use them? <br />“Figuring out the color combinations for electronic presentations is challenging. Auto-content wizards will take you step-by-step through the process & even help you decide what typefaces you can use, in what size, in what position, & with what background.”<br />Be careful about making your own template.<br />It’s ok to use the pre-made templates.<br />“The biggest mistake a novice can make is to ignore the guides created by the templates & place text on each page willy-nilly, which inevitably leads to each slide being slightly different than the one before & the one after”(Jukes).<br />Use websites like http://web.mac.com/iajukes/thecommittedsardine/Funny_Stuff.htmlorhttp://powerpointforteachers.com/index.htmlto find helpful ideas to make or enhance your presentation. <br />
  6. 6. Fully Involve the Learner!<br />An engaged learner will take in more information than a passive learner. <br />“Teaching and Learning with Technology” advises teachers to take steps that will ensure that video viewing is a compelling experience. <br />Make handouts or study guides<br />Discuss the objectives of the video and the key ideas it will present. <br />Be sure to adjust sound, seating and lighting to ensure the best quality.<br />
