  • Interesting point of view. We get used to think that PPT presentation is helpful but as everything it has both pros and cons. Dialog is the vital part of learning.

Module 6 - PowerPoint in Education

  2. 2. POWERPOINT IN EDUCATION <ul><li>Article 1: How PowerPoint • Is Killing • Education </li></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Summary </li></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Quote </li></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Personal Reflection </li></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><li>Article 2: PowerPoint Presentation Technology and the Dynamics of Teaching </li></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Summary </li></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Quote </li></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Personal Reflection </li></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><li>Article 3: Power of PowerPoint and role of chalkboard </li></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Summary </li></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Quote </li></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Personal Reflection </li></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><li>Conclusion </li></ul>Click here
  3. 3. HOW POWERPOINT • IS KILLING • EDUCATION <ul><li>The article How PowerPoint • Is Killing • Education discusses the idea of the </li></ul><ul><li>presentation itself and how the information being presented is portrayed by the </li></ul><ul><li>audience. The article mentions that PowerPoint presentations lack interaction in the </li></ul><ul><li>learning process and topics are often “dumbed down” and important information is </li></ul><ul><li>left out, due to summarization and the use of main points. The lack of information at </li></ul><ul><li>hand may cause presenters to leave off important information that the audience </li></ul><ul><li>should know. This article examines the way technology maybe hurting, rather than </li></ul><ul><li>helping education. </li></ul>NEXT PAGE…
  4. 4. HOW POWERPOINT • IS KILLING • EDUCATION <ul><li>“ The root problem of PowerPoint presentations is not the power or the point, but the </li></ul><ul><li>presentation. A presentation, by its very nature, is one-sided. The presenter does </li></ul><ul><li>everything -- gathers information, eliminates extraneous points, and selects the </li></ul><ul><li>direction and duration of the presentation. The role of the audience is to sit and </li></ul><ul><li>absorb the information.” – Marc Isseks </li></ul><ul><li>Citation </li></ul><ul><li>Isseks, M. (2011). How powerpoint • is killing • education. Educational Leadership, 68(5). </li></ul>NEXT PAGE…
  5. 5. HOW POWERPOINT • IS KILLING • EDUCATION <ul><li>Although I do see where this article is coming from when it mentions that the </li></ul><ul><li>presentation style affiliated with PowerPoint could be lacking some important </li></ul><ul><li>information, I do believe that PowerPoint presentations are a great way to convey a </li></ul><ul><li>message with an exciting use of pictures, sounds, videos and other eye catching </li></ul><ul><li>visual aids. </li></ul><ul><li>The article caught my attention with… </li></ul><ul><li>The discussion about the way PowerPoint presentations are able to be set up with bullet points, only using the main points </li></ul><ul><li>How some information could be left off with such main points </li></ul><ul><li>The presentation style with the presenter/audience setup and the lack of audience interaction </li></ul>NEXT PAGE…
  6. 6. POWERPOINT PRESENTATION TECHNOLOGY AND THE DYNAMICS OF TEACHING <ul><li>The article PowerPoint Presentation Technology and the Dynamics of Teaching </li></ul><ul><li>discusses the strengths and weaknesses of presenting via PowerPoint. The article </li></ul><ul><li>speaks about how the classroom atmosphere is different with a PowerPoint </li></ul><ul><li>presentation because the class is expected to sit and listen, rather than speak to their </li></ul><ul><li>peers and engage in conversation. On the other hand, the article mentions the “visual </li></ul><ul><li>uniformity” of PowerPoint and how it benefits the listener; however, even the article </li></ul><ul><li>then goes on to state that even this argument is thought to be an idea thought of by </li></ul><ul><li>PowerPoint’s corporate creator. </li></ul>NEXT PAGE
  7. 7. POWERPOINT PRESENTATION TECHNOLOGY AND THE DYNAMICS OF TEACHING <ul><li>“ There is also a profound impact on literacy. PowerPoint slides are often devoid of </li></ul><ul><li>paragraphs, pronouns, punctuation, conjunctions, auxiliary verbs and articles. The </li></ul><ul><li>obligation to form full sentences has become optional and the spelling of polysyllabic </li></ul><ul><li>words has become a lost art in a sea of PowerPoint-induced abbreviations. (A similar </li></ul><ul><li>criticism could be made of the use of overhead transparency slides. But we contend </li></ul><ul><li>that the effect is much more pronounced with PowerPoint.)” – Russell Craig, Joel Amenic </li></ul><ul><li>Citation </li></ul><ul><li>Craig Amenic, RJ JH. (2006). Powerpoint presentation technology and the dynamics. Innovative Higher Education, 31(3), 147-160, 14. </li></ul>NEXT PAGE
  8. 8. POWERPOINT PRESENTATION TECHNOLOGY AND THE DYNAMICS OF TEACHING <ul><li>Like the last article, I can see where the authors of this article are coming from when </li></ul><ul><li>they talk about what presentations lack with the use of PowerPoint. I also found the </li></ul><ul><li>article to be very intriguing when they topic of different aspects of grammar are </li></ul><ul><li>skewed based on the to-the-point mentality of a PowerPoint presentation. </li></ul><ul><li>The article caught my attention with… </li></ul><ul><li>The idea of the decline in proper grammar and punctuation </li></ul><ul><li>The idea of “visual uniformity” </li></ul><ul><li>The thought that information is not as interactive as other teaching methods </li></ul>NEXT PAGE
  9. 9. POWER OF POWERPOINT AND ROLE OF CHALKBOARD <ul><li>The article Power of PowerPoint and role of chalkboard discusses the pros and cons </li></ul><ul><li>of teaching with a chalkboard and the use of PowerPoint. The article talks about how </li></ul><ul><li>a chalkboard may be more interactive, but the visual appeal is not there. Whereas, </li></ul><ul><li>PowerPoint may be more visually appealing, but the overall interaction of presenter </li></ul><ul><li>and the audience is sacrificed. The article mentions that the use of both teaching </li></ul><ul><li>methods is highly effective and when used together, test scores increase, which is </li></ul><ul><li>very intriguing. </li></ul>NEXT PAGE
  10. 10. POWER OF POWERPOINT AND ROLE OF CHALKBOARD <ul><li>“ It was observed that the students who attend the lecture on both PowerPoint and </li></ul><ul><li>chalkboard obtained better score in single best multiple choice question examination, </li></ul><ul><li>compared to those students who attended the same contents-based lecture on the </li></ul><ul><li>PowerPoint or chalkboard only. Therefore, it is suggested that integrated approach </li></ul><ul><li>should be adopted, conceptual figures, flowcharts, video clips may be discussed by </li></ul><ul><li>using the PowerPoint but core contents must be discussed with chalkboard.” </li></ul><ul><li>– Sultan Ayoub Meo </li></ul><ul><li>Citation </li></ul><ul><li>Meo, SA. (2008). Power of powerpoint and role of chalkboard. 30(6), 639-641, 3. </li></ul>NEXT PAGE
  11. 11. POWER OF POWERPOINT AND ROLE OF CHALKBOARD <ul><li>I found that this article was interesting because of the idea that the use of both </li></ul><ul><li>chalkboard and PowerPoint are much more effective teaching methods than just one </li></ul><ul><li>or the other. I also found it interesting that this article, like the previous two, go along </li></ul><ul><li>with the idea that learning from a PowerPoint presentation is not overly effective </li></ul><ul><li>because it lacks so much communication. </li></ul><ul><li>The article caught my attention with… </li></ul><ul><li>PowerPoint lacks interaction person to person </li></ul><ul><li>The idea that a chalkboard alone lacks the visual appeal that PowerPoint has </li></ul><ul><li>PowerPoint and chalkboard learning is highly effective in successful test scores </li></ul>NEXT PAGE
  12. 12. IN CONCLUSION… <ul><li>Before researching the idea of how PowerPoint presentations effect education, I </li></ul><ul><li>always thought that PowerPoint was a great idea and did not really think about the </li></ul><ul><li>faults of the presentation idea. I see now that there are indeed many weaknesses in </li></ul><ul><li>the idea of presenting with PowerPoint. I see where interaction is lacking, knowledge </li></ul><ul><li>could be lost, and overall speaking is faulted, due to the lack of forming complete </li></ul><ul><li>sentences. I will think differently from now on about PowerPoint, how I create and </li></ul><ul><li>present various presentations, and how I absorb information being presented via </li></ul><ul><li>PowerPoint. </li></ul>END SHOW
