Power presentation

  1. 1. Presentations with Power<br />By: Cassandra Borchert<br />
  2. 2. Overview<br />Technology is a big asset to the classroom and to students learning. These days everything is technology and the students can relate to technology more. The best way to use technology is in your presentations. How you try to present information to your students can be everything. Below are a few ways to incorporate technology into your presentation and make them powerful!<br />Audio<br />Non-projecting Visuals<br />Projecting Visuals<br />PowerPoints<br />Videos<br />TV<br />Internet<br />
  3. 3. Audio Technologies<br />Many teachers use audio teaching everyday. Speaking to your students in a lecture or giving your students simple directions, is a form of audio teaching. Sometimes your voice is not enough to keep your students attention.<br />Types of Audio:<br />Audiocassettes used to be a very common way to interact your students with a lesson. They are easy for the students to use, durable, and inexpensive. Audiocassette players are great for students to listen to books or read along with. <br />Compact disc (CD’s) are another way to grab the students attention. The audio is more clear than a cassette, they are easy to store, they can recordable, and there are a variety of different educational discs.<br />MP3’s are a great way to download free music and upload them into a file or project to add power to your presentation. <br />Teaching and Learning with Technology 4th Edition Duffy & McDonald Page 289-291<br />
  4. 4. Visual Technologies<br />Audio doesn’t always catch the students attention. This is why visuals come in handy. They are more eye catching educational displays. <br />Types of visuals:<br />Non-projecting Visuals<br />Printed materials and Bulletin Boards- These include posters or charts that the students can use to see what they are learning clearly laid out and in front of them. Bulletin boards are a great way to display the poster and are easy to change out posters when the lesson is over.<br />On posters try to keep it simple. Too much can loose focus or the learner. Keep it clean and not chaotic. Don’t place pictures and word everywhere. Try to keep them in line and straight across. <br /><ul><li>Other ways of displaying graphics or posters are Whiteboard, Chalkboards, and felt boards. They are very versatile of what you can do with them. You can Velcro things to them, write and erase on then easily, staple papers or posters to them and get the class involved but having them come up to the board.</li></ul>Teaching and Learning with Technology 4th Edition Duffy & McDonald Page 294<br />
  5. 5. Visual Continued..<br />Projected Visuals<br />Overhead Projectors- Visuals are created on thin sheets of paper called transparency sheets. A powerful lamp shines through the projector, through the transparency sheet, through a bunch of mirrors and onto a projector screen. Items displayed on overhead projects can be hand drawn, printed, or photo copied. These look professional and if they are printed then they are a permanent visual. <br />Digital projectors- Use images from a digital camera or a digital video camera but basically do they same thing as a overhead projector except they can show video and digital images. They are also more compact and can attach to the ceiling. They take up less space in a classroom. <br />Teaching and Learning with Technology 4th Edition Duffy & McDonald Page 294-297<br />
  6. 6. Visual Cont..<br />PowerPoint Presentation- Are an excellent way to present your lesson. You can do videos, audio, photos, and write. <br />Doing a PowerPoint can be tricky though, You must stay consistent and focused, and keep the learners hooked.<br />Don’t use crazy colors, fonts, and designs.<br />Make sure the imagines and fonts are an appropriate size so the viewer can clearly see the presentation<br />Keep the visuals simple and not chaotic.<br />Used bulletins to break up big paragraphs so that you keep the viewers attention but don’t over use. <br />Along with bulletins don’t over use special effects. They will become less “special” if used too much. <br />Only add images the emphasize your point. <br />The InfoSavvy Group Ian Jukes Pages 9-16<br />
  7. 7. Video Technology<br />Broadcast Video- mostly known as TV. Many local learning channels have great programs that display the lesson you are teaching in a clear way. These channels can be CBS, PBS, ABC, and NBC. This is a great way to not have to rent videos and they can easily be recorded from your home television and brought into your classroom or played live. <br />VHS or DVD videos- You can rent of but these kinds of videos. Videos are a great way for students to really understand what you are trying to teach. Most videos are real situations of your lesson. This way your no just talking about it but you are showing the students how it is in real life. Students also get excited when they see you pull out a DVD or VHS because it makes them feel like they are watching a movie like they would at home.<br />Teaching and Learning with Technology 4th Edition Duffy & McDonald Page 299-303<br />
  8. 8. Internet Technology<br />YouTube!!<br />Although YouTube can have irrelevant and inappropriate material on it there are a lot of videos that are very useful. You also do not have to rent movies or anything for your class. Its as simple as searching the topic you want and scanning through the videos to find the one perfect for your lecture. Some material is also humorous which is a great way to keep your students attention. <br />Below is a video from YouTube that explains why technology is important in classrooms and students learning experience. <br />http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qLRlRIV-alE&feature=related<br />Teaching and Learning with Technology 4th Edition Duffy & McDonald Page 308<br />
