Required PowerPoint Textbook By Janet Caughlin 2 nd edition
Required HyperStudio Textbook Karen McBride Elizabeth DeBoer
Course Objectives The student will: demonstrate skills needed to develop presentations using hypermedia tools. plan, design, present, and evaluate hypermedia presentations. integrate hypermedia tools into content-area instruction. use hypermedia tools to support a constructivist approach to learning.
Course Projects Develop a lesson plan in which students use hypermedia tools as a means to construct knowledge. Construct a project and presentation on a topic of interest to you to. You will plan, design, develop, and present a hypermedia presentation using either HyperStudio or PowerPoint. Include with your project at least 4 planning worksheets available in McBride and DeBoer on pages 83 –116. The Final Project will contain a minimum of 15 slides/cards. Write a two-page reflection paper that summarizes your learning in this course.

Groups We will establish small groups for the purpose of in-depth discussion and peer evaluation and feedback. Hypermedia projects are often created with inadequate thought for how they will be perceived by others. The small groups will focus on a set of learning activities involving peer evaluations that address this problem. The goal of these formative evaluations is to provide suggestions for improvement. The groups will remain intact for the remainder of the course.
Unit 1 – Introduction to Hypermedia Hypermedia technological tools that allow for the integration of images, sound, and text have been attributed a high potential for fostering learning. This week we will explore what is possible with these tools as we become acquainted with our learning community.
Unit 2: Exploring Presentations Online- Identifying PowerPointlessness Many teacher and student-made presentations can be downloaded from the web. Caughlin has also shared many presentations on pages 117- 172. Exploring and evaluating these presentations will assist learners in identifying effective strategies and ideas for creating hypermedia presentations. It will also allow you to identify features that detract from the presentations content or message. I hope I have made my point!
Unit 3: Lesson Plans that Integrate Hypermedia The power of hypermedia cannot be realized until it is placed in the hands of students. This week we will examine the examples of lessons that involve student production of hypermedia. You will develop a lesson plan in which students use hypermedia tools as a means to construct knowledge
Unit 4: PowerPoint Basics PowerPoint is an effective hypermedia tool. A strong understanding of the basics is important for maximizing its worth. This week our lab time will focus on mastering the basics of PowerPoint.
Unit 5: Why Take the Hypermedia Plunge? Hypermedia is a powerful teaching and learning tool. It not only makes teaching and learning fun and exciting, but its use can be easily justified by sound educational principles. Success in our communication-based society requires skills in problem solving, critical thinking, collaboration, and communication of ideas through multiple formats. When hypermedia tools are integrated with constructivist teaching and learning methodologies, students are prepared to thrive in a communications-based society.
Unit 6: Diagrams, AutoShapes, and Movies You will focus on features that can enhance your presentation. Diagrams help illustrate ideas. You will create and animate organization, cycle, radial, pyramid, Venn, and target diagrams. You will also work with speaker notes, autoshapes, and formatting the background and slide show timing. You will be introduced to the slide master that will allow you to set the layout for the entire presentation. You will create a movie to make a ball bounce and learn to insert pictures from the Internet and video clips in your presentation.
Unit 7: Planning Hypermedia Presentations Successful hypermedia presentations dont just happen. They are the result of effective planning. Content must be researched before appropriate multimedia components can be chosen. It is important to remember the purpose of the hypermedia presentation is the communication of the content. Mistakes and excessive production time can be minimized by first planning each component of the presentation on paper. Storyboarding is a valuable planning tool for hypermedia production.
Unit 8: Templates and Linking Templates are useful for students who are just beginning to use PowerPoint. A template can serve as a scaffold to help students organize their thoughts. Knowledge of template construction will be gained. In addition, you will learn to link to slides, other presentations, Internet sites, and other files to create nonlinear, interactive presentations that can be used as self-paced tutorials or interactive games. Furthermore, you will learn to incorporate sounds from other sources and scanned images.
Unit 9: Designing Hypermedia Presentations The good news is that anyone can create a hypermedia presentation. The bad news is that anyone can create a hypermedia presentation. Effective communication has as its foundation good design (McBride and DeBoer, 2001). Good design often has a simple, straightforward format. The four key areas to consider when designing hypermedia presentations are content, consistency, creativity, and composition. We will explore each of these areas.
Unit 10: HyperStudio Tutorial 1 This unit provides an overview of Hyperstudio basics. You will learn to add new cards, backgrounds, action buttons, text and graphic objects, and animations. Additional, use will use the Paint tool to create and edit graphics.
Unit 11: Presenting Hypermedia Presentations An effective presentation goes beyond the simple communication of ideas to the teaching of those ideas for understanding and application (McBride and DeBoer, 2001). The most common mistake that many presenters make is to read the slides to their audience. Hypermedia slides should enhance the presentation, not be the presentation. You will examine the components of effective presentations.
Unit 12: Hyperstudio Tutorial 2 Now that you have mastered the basics of HyperStudio, you will explore additional features of the program.
Unit 13: Evaluation of Hypermedia Presentations The purpose of evaluation is not solely to determine a grade. It should also provide motivation and feedback to students. Presenting evaluation criteria before and during the project enables students to focus on the content and skills specified by the instructor. Rubrics guide students in becoming better judges of the quality of their own work. In this unit you will explore tools and resources for evaluating hypermedia presentations.
Learner Presentations Our final two weeks will be spent in the lab doing face-to-face hypermedia presentations. Peer learners will use the 2 plus 2 evaluation technique to provide feedback about the presentation. Learners will post a 2-page reflection of their learning in this course.
