1 TECHNOLOGY FOR PRESENTATIONS April 15, 2014: Micki Byrnes & Martha Milam

2 Coaching Students on How to Present Well: >Check out these Useful Tools & Tips that I used as resources for this presentation: >http://www.edutopia.org/blog/8-tips-classroom-presentation-jason- cranford-teague >http://www.edudemic.com/presentation-tools-teachers/ >http://www.boxoftricks.net/2009/05/top-five-online-presentation-tools/ >http://www.edudemic.com/27-presentation-tips-for-students-and- teachers/

3 3 Presentation Tips for Students Students usually want to charge right in and start using the presentation software immediately. Do the research first and know your material. 1. Know Your Topic - It's NOT about the Technology Tools!

4 2. Avoid Using Too Much Text >Good presenters include only the most important information. >One of the biggest mistakes students make in classroom presentations is writing their whole speech on the slides. Limit the number of bullets to three or four per slide.

5 3. Avoid Fancy Fonts & Be BIG Choose a font that is simple and easy to read such as Arial, Times New Roman or Verdana. Don't use more than two different fonts – one for headings and another for content. Keep all fonts large enough (at least 18 pt and preferably 24 pt)

6 We hope the WHOLE Speech isn't written on the slides. We hope they turn to look at the students, the teacher, or somewhere besides their slideshow! Student Presentations
