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!
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.
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)
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
PRESENTATION TOOLS You need POWER POINT Software to make a Power Point, but most presentation tools are ONLINE (web-based). No software needed! 1) Google Presentation (SLIDES) 2) Prezi 3) Zoho Show (THIS is a Zoho Show!) 4) Haiku Deck 5) Projeqt 6) Empressr 7) GlogsterEDU
GOOGLE PRESENTATION Using Google SLIDES Similar to Power Point Easy to Share, Collaborate and Store on Google Drive
GlogsterEDU http://mickibyrnes.edu.glogster.com/tintern-abbey Glogster EDU provides users with a blank canvas that they can pin images, videos, sound bytes, and animated features to. These "glogs" can then be accessed via web links or embedded into a web page (like Edmodo!).
