Unit 1 – Improving Productivity Instructions ~ 100 words per box
1.1Why did you use a computer? What other systems / resources could you have used? I used a computer because it will make the presentation easier and neater and if I make a mistake I can delete it without much fuss besides you type quicker than you write. You can also be very creative the difference is that sooner or latter you would run out of space on the paper on the computer it will only take minutes whilst paper take hours just to get it perfect. I used the hyperlinks because moving around the presentation slide by slide would be a dragon having to go back and forth over and over.
1.2What skills did you need to learn in order to use PowerPoint? The skills you will need is how to use PowerPoint, where the buttons are, what they do. The reason why you should use PowerPoint is because it will take a short time without it life might be more harder. I knew most of the skills a long time ago when I was younger. I didn’t know how to hyperlink, use short cuts and they made a better presentation. I learned skills to make it more professional and not overlap the words you have used and it is easier to understand. Use of short cuts for example Ctrl + c.
1.2What resources did you need to make the presentation successful? The resources I needed to make the presentation successful was information reason for that is because information is needed to find out about certain objects that you have no idea about. Animation because it makes the presentation more interesting and fun and stand outish. Videos because a video will show you certain pieces of information that is easier to see then speak sometimes it is not better.
1.4What factors might have affected how well you completed the presentation? (e.g. time / attendance / knowledge of software) I did catch up lessons after school because I was behind everybody else and I wanted to not be too far behind. The catch up lessons did help because now I am up to date with everybody else and I wont be far behind it was because there wasn’t a lot of people and I wouldn’t have to wait and lose time and because there wasn’t groups of people it was much more quiet and easier to concentrate. It helped by my knowledge of the software which picture or information goes where, the hyperlinks makes it easier to move around the presentation without too much trouble. I didn’t know certain skills that I do now and because I needed a lot of help I was behind and catch up lessons was what I needed to catch up or be left behind.
1.6Why did you use PowerPoint to make your presentation? What other software was available? Why did you choose not to use them? I used PowerPoint because it was a better option to use and it is very easy to do a presentation publisher is well-known for leaflets, birthday cards and business cards, Microsoft is a better use for typing stories, doing essays and typing letters, excel is used for spreadsheets access is used for managing data you can watch videos on PowerPoint without much trouble. Most of the other Microsoft programs aren’t that entertaining besides it is all on paper. What is so interesting reading information off a piece of paper? You can place images and videos on PowerPoint without much trouble.
2.2Which tools within PowerPoint made it appropriate for your presentation? Layout – PowerPoint you can put pictures anywhere you want whilst word has certain places where you can put your pictures Animations- Moving pictures Slide transitions – Slide Effects Underline – Words that are underlined Hyperlinks- Making the presentation shorter To make this presentation appropriate I had to use hyperlinks, Animations, Slide transitions, underlines as well as layout I had to use pictures that is appropriate and had to do with the school, hyperlinks I can use they can be very useful when getting around the presentation without much trouble and it was also important to add buttons to show that it will be easier to get around.
1.7Were there any legal constraints or local constraints that changed the way you created your presentation? (e.g. copyright, file sizes, AUP) The changes I made to my presentation was file size because when I tried to email it the size to email it was too big and I had to make some changes for example I had too many pictures, animation and videos. I had to change the size quality of the picture to make the presentation much smaller. There were certain pictures I couldn’t paste because of the student block and Copyright which means I need the permission of the owner of the picture and the AUP. There were also certain websites that was also blocked to prevent any unappropriated behaviour that was seen by this website.
2.4What improvements do you think you could do to your presentation? To improve my presentation I could use less pictures and animations and more information because information is needed for the presentation however I wouldn’t type too much information because it would be boring and I should have a decent amount of animations and videos. In the presentation I could of used hyperlinks more effectively and the use of pictures as well as the use of transitions as well as the design of the PowerPoint, besides I could have used Format. I've could of used word art to make the presentation much more interesting than just used normal writing because if you used normal writing then it won’t want to make the presentation.
3.2What improvements do you think you could have done to improve your work rate? (keyboard shortcuts, file names & locations, backups, work after school, templates, planning) To improve my work rate I should of come after school and learn the keyboard shortcuts which speeds up working on the computer because it means you don’t have to do it the long way and type faster because I cannot type faster when I try for a long time I receive arm pains. The improving I needed is to plan it before doing the work so I know what I’m typing what should I change I have used planning, filenames and I have worked after school as well as file names, I also needed to concentrate because I get distracted easily
