(W3) Beyond PowerPoint

Tuesday 1st June 2010 : 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 Chris,
I teach Food & Nutrition to students aged 13 to 17.
Some problems faced:
1. dry theory lesson
2. school having different version of powerpoint from students causing delay in presentation.
3. Not having the right clipart to highlight the ideas or help students retain the information.
4. animations overlapping when print powerpoint in handout form.
5. Speakers note not available when doing slideshow.
6. Tedious preparation process.
Hope the workshop could address some of these issues.

Thank you

Hi Chris,
I teach P2 pupils a group of 8 year olds. Been using ppt tools to supplement my lessons. Now, my pupils are also equipped with the skills that I have. Been hoping to find other possibilities and alternatives to spice up my lesson. I am sure my pupils will be looking forward to this moment.

Hi Chris,

The course title attracted me to attend this as it is a difficulty that I face whenever i ask my students to do a presentation as they will end up using the PPT software. So I hope it will be beneficial to improve my students' learning as well as make lessons more lively.

Anyways, I am teaching Malay Language to secondary school students from the age group of 13-16 years old.
