Are you or your students becoming bored using PowerPoint as the main tool for producing presentations ... are you or your students suffering from "Death by PowerPoint" or "PowerPointlessness"? .... then this session is designed specifically for you (or your students).
We will look at some of the alternatives for spicing up your presentations and making them more exciting ... not only using software but also web 2.0 online applications.
The alternatives chosen are mainly free, can be learnt in just a few minutes by teachers with very little experience and make use of the slides you have already produced in your old PowerPoints. We will also look at ways in which students can build and share their presentations collaboratively.
In addition you will be shown where to find free (legal) resources for presentations (images, videos and sound files) .... and clarify how to copyright your own resources.
Those attending this session are expected to:
a) introduce themselves before the session on the Blog at http://singaporeworkshops.blogspot.com
b) bring a thumbdrive/flashdrive to save files on ... or bring your own laptop
c) bring a PowerPoint (ppt file) presentation of no more than 10 slides to the session.
d) already be able to make basic PowerPoint presentations.
This is not a session on how to use Microsoft PowerPoint but about how to move on to something even more inspirational and motivating that supports the teaching and learning for yourself and for your students.
