TYPES OF PRESENTATIONS

Stand-Alone 
In stand-alone presentations the slideshow is showing ALL the information. It can either run automatically or be clicked through. We use this a lot for our presentations during culmination as some participants can be viewing the show while others talk to the student presenter.

Traditional 
In traditional presentations the slideshow should be a backdrop and NOT take away from what the presenter is saying. Minimal words and good graphics are a good idea.

TIPS AND TRICKS

  • Show students “touchstone” presentations to get the ideas flowing.
  • Students should then plan on paper before working on the technology.
  • Make sure to use good, relevant, and creative common images.
  • Make sure students cite all images either on the slide or at the end of the show.
  •  We try to encourage students to take or draw their own images.
  • Try out other presentation sites like Google Slides and Powtoons.

POWERPOINT FOR IMAGES

Powerpoint makes it very easy to create images. Simply layout a slide – select everything you need – right click – save as image. Using this you can edit clipart, combine text and images, and grab screenshots. You can also remove backgrounds on images.
