    linear presentation of materials to non-linear
    organization models.

  • Lack of interactivity Teacher no longer
    interacts with the media. Promotes passive

    mm slides are 4000 X 3000.

    into linear mind-set.

Twelve Tips for Effective PPT Presentations

    for your presentation, keep it in front of you
    throughout development.
  • Use sound and video only for educational
  • Look for relevant ways to provide learning cues,
    such as color and icons.
  • Use the same color when discussing the same
  • Use icons that represent a topic or step.
