2 Using Technology in Training November 24, 2006

3 Overview Today’s session will focus on using PowerPoint to develop training materials.

4 Outcomes At the end of today’s session, participants will begin to utilize PowerPoint to develop a short presentation using actual materials from the Literacy Trainer handbook. Participants will begin to familiarize themselves with making a presentation using an LCD projector.

5 Top ten reasons to incorporate PowerPoint presentations in Tutor Training Address different learning styles Make a workshop more interesting Eliminate use of overheads Give trainers a break Back-up resources for absent trainers Training resource for missed segments by trainees Refresher materials always available on demand Update materials easily Share materials easily Looks really cool and professional!

6 The window that first opens in PowerPoint has a big working space in the middle, with smaller areas around it. That middle space is the slide area, officially called the slide pane. Working in this space, you type text directly onto the slide. The area you type into is a box with a dashed border called a placeholder. All the text that you type onto a slide resides in a box like this. Most slides include one or more placeholders for titles, body text such as lists or regular paragraphs, and other content such as pictures or charts.

This area is the Slides tab, and you can click the slide thumbnails here to navigate among slides. 3.The notes pane. Type notes that you'll use when presenting. You can drag the borders of the pane to make the notes area bigger. Source: http://office.microsoft.com/training/training.aspx?AssetID=RP0112 98861033&CTT=6&Origin=RP011298731033

11 Adding New Slides When PowerPoint opens, there's only one slide in the show. It's up to you to add the rest. Add them as you go or several at a time, as you prefer. Two quick methods for adding a slide: 1.On the Slides tab in the left of the window, either click the slide thumbnail that you want the new slide to follow, and then press ENTER. Or: 2.Right-click the slide thumbnail that you want the new slide to follow, and then click New Slide on the shortcut menu.

12 Adding Speaking Notes As you put text on your slides, type your speaker notes (if you want any) in the notes pane, below the slide. As the picture shows, you can enlarge the notes pane so that it's easier to work in. Your notes are saved in a notes page, which you can print before the show. 1.Notes pane in normal view. 2.Drag the split bar up to enlarge the notes pane, then type your note text. 3.The notes page layout as seen in notes view or when the notes are printed.

PowerPoint tries to help you here by displaying slide layouts to choose from each time you add a slide. The layout, when applied, arranges content to fit into a specific combination of placeholders. For example, if you know you'll have text on the slide and you also want a picture or graphic of some kind, choose a layout that supplies the placeholder types and arrangement that you want. Using different slide layouts Click on: Format Slide Layout
