This visual aid has some excellent tips that students can use when creating a powerpoint presentation. Students are often expected to create these presentations and not given specific guidelines on how to make an effective powerpoint so this could be shared with students when they are using this program to complete projects.
I have definitely sat through many boring PowerPoint presentations in class. I know that PowerPoints are one of the most commonly used presentation methods, so if I used this, I would definitely make mine unique.
These tips are great for a teacher making a presentation for the class or even for students. This would be great to introduce to upper elementary grades before they start using a powerpoint tool to make a project. These tips will produce higher level thinking and learning.
