What makes a good PowerPoint Design? A training tool for teachers and students
Effective PowerPoint Design Keep It Simple Silly Use short phrases Use pictures or graphics that support the bulleted points Make sure the next slides builds on the previous one. Take logical steps Ensure colors, background, and animations are not too distracting. Sometimes less is more.
Effective PowerPoint Design Be consistent with each slide –Keep the same heading design –If appropriate keep the same color design (use a color to make a point or draw attention to a specific point in the presentation –Use bold, italics, and underline to draw attention to a specific point in the presentation –Be careful not to overuse sounds and animations. They can be too distracting and take away from the presentation
Effective PowerPoint Design Background colors and font –Use contrasting colors Yellow on a blue background works really well. (never use less than 24 point font) Dark on dark or light on light does not work well. Neither does a distracting background with the same color text. Remember, the PowerPoint is used to present information and get a point across to the viewing audience.
Effective PowerPoint Design Use slight changes (around 10%) to recapture the audience. –I–It could be an animation –T–Text color –A–A graphic or sound Remember, too much can be too distracting
Last but not least –R–Remember the audience and who the presentation is for –P–Plan a presentation that will meet their interest and needs that will meet their expectations
