Enhancing Learning through Powerpoint

Today’s ICT session was on presentation software. We focused on power point and how to use it effectively to convey ideas to an audience. The benefits of using power points is that you can pre prepare resources in advance and it can be used as a lively an interesting way of presenting information especially for visual learners, however they need to be used correctly and should enhance and accent a presentation and not overwhelm it with too many slides and information overload. Here is a link to a humorous take on ‘Death by Power Point’.

I created a Power point on polar bears and integrated a video into a slide and used transitions to enhance visuals.  I also chose appropriate arctic music to help create an atmosphere.
