Chris Anderson TED’s secret to great public speaking
TYPES OF PRESENTATIONS
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.
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.
