Title: Discovering It Come Alive in PowerPoint :

Discovering It Come Alive in PowerPoint
Animations, Cartoons, and Video Clips
  • Scott A. Sinex
  • Prince Georges Community College

Presented at Powering Up with Technology held at
Northern High School on 16 November 2002.

PowerPoint Induced Sleep
  • Too much on a slide (overloaded) especially text
  • Fact after fact after fact - boring
  • And then read it to your students and say
    goodnight

Can we make it dynamic and enhance the
visualization of concepts?
Can we get students engaged in the class?

Active Learning
  • Do you want your students to participate in
    class? (less lecture, more discussion)
  • Do they need to predict what is going to be an
    outcome?
  • Do you poll your students on issues or an answer?

4
The power at your fingertips
  • Custom animation
  • entrance
  • emphasis
  • exiting
  • motion paths
  • Images or pictures
  • with more processing tools
  • Animated gifs
  • Cartooning
  • Movies and sound
  • Hyperlinks
  • to the Internet
  • to local files on your computer

Help prevent PowerPoint induced sleep!
