Presenting Power Through PowerPoint Presentation

“In presentations or speeches less really is more, No audience ever complained about a presentation or speech being too short, Proper Planning and Preparation Prevents Poor Performance”  
- Stephen Keague, The Little Red Handbook of Public Speaking and Presenting

Week 6 started with several questions like Teaching with Large Class using technology to engage students for more interactive solutions. We have already learned some many things on Project – Based Learning, WebQuest which can be helpful in enhancing learning in the students.

The second question focused was how is interactive PowerPoint different from the standard PowerPoint we usually see? How can you see interactive PowerPoint in your classrooms and can be made more interactive?

The third was most difficult in preparing for interactive powerpoint using two – three different elements for making powerpoint interactive for our class.

This time I have read all the articles in detail as possible and try to understand the need as a teacher to learn about large classes and interactive powerpoint. I have posted my discussion on Nicenet where I was answered by Sean Sir regarding my implementation of Blog as an assignment, he gave two solution for that.
1) Direct instruction to students on the use of the chosen tool to make sure that students have a solid understanding if its use.
2) Pick a different and more effective tool.
I knew I was wrong somewhere but I thought it will be done as an experiment. Tool selection is most important part when you use technology as a change agent in your class.

I have learned to make Jeopardy Game but it takes lot of time and also quiz using different types of style. The articles were really useful in explaining the detail of use and the instruction regarding the points that teacher should keep in mind before presenting the presentation in class has taught and reminded some useful tips for presenting presentation with power.

For making the presentation interesting I am going to create one video on my youtube channel which will focus on presentation projection abilities of teacher to grab the students’ attention using power point or Prezi which is far ahead in all terms than simple slide changing presentation.

There are more points to be discussed in this topic and can be done much more than standard techniques towards increasing interactiveness in presentation skills.

Thanking you to all my friend mates for making me learn so many things.
