Beyond PowerPoint

Mon 30th Nov : 9:00 - 5:00 (full day session)
Beyond PowerPoint

If students are bored with ppt then these alternatives will stimulate.
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 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) digital resources for presentations (images, videos and sound files) .... and clarify how to copyright your own resources.
Please note that this is NOT a workshop about PowerPoint although we will be spending time at the beginning covering some of the mistakes students make when presenting and also ensuring we all have at least the basic skills of reducing file sizes and exporting slides.

Please bring a simple PowerPoint presentation with you to this session .... consisting of about 6 slides.

Hi, I'm Zakiah from Yuying Secondary School and I teach Malay Language. I just graduated from NTU-NIE in July so I've only started teaching as a qualified teacher for about half a year. I've made a problem-based learning package using Powerpoint during my degree course, and that took a very long time due to the animation sequences, because the Powerpoint was designed to be on auto play with ONLY the student clicking on certain hyperlinked action buttons before finally coming to the task slide. I would like to know how to make Powerpoint slides that are more interactive and would lessen teacher talk quite a bit. I believe TLLM (Teach Less Learn More) should also mean the teacher talks less, in terms of direct teaching. ;P

Hi, I'm Dzaariny from Poi Ching School. I have been using Power Point in my lessons to engage my pupils, especially so for the visual learners. With this ICT age, I am wondering what other ways can we include ICT into our lessons to make it more interactive for the pupils - hands on application perhaps?
