Using PowerPoint in Lessons

Some Ideas, Myths and “Rules” -

An Aid to Classroom Work

eLearning 2007


Introduction l.jpg
Introduction.

  • I have assumed you know how PP works….

  • Aims:-

    • A quick revision on PP basics

    • To make PP a useful tool

    • To give you ideas to incorporate

    • To help you think about lesson plans and PP

    • To dispel some myths and (hopefully) give you some good ideas

eLearning 2007


Some myths l.jpg
Some Myths

  • PowerPoint is difficult to use!

  • Teaching is like giving a presentation!

  • PowerPoint is good!

  • PowerPoint is bad!

  • You can never put too much information on a slide!

  • Animation (and other PP tools) are good!

eLearning 2007


Revision using pp 1 l.jpg
Revision – using PP (1)

  • Opening and Saving a file

    • Same as any other MStm application

  • Default is “bullet points”

  • Using Master View

  • Animating Text

  • Inserting pictures/videos etc.

eLearning 2007


Revision using pp 2 l.jpg
Revision – using PP (2)

  • Master View.

    • Go to [View], [Master], [Slide Master]

    • Should get this screen.

eLearning 2007


Revision using pp 3 l.jpg
Revision – using PP (3)

  • Animating text

    • One of the myths!

      • I’ve used how many animations so far?

      • Look at this:-

        • Let’s go round and round

        • Let’s bounce

        • Let’s swish

        • Let’s swivel

      • What are you expecting now?

      • How did I do this?

eLearning 2007


Revision using pp 4 l.jpg
Revision – using PP (4)

  • Adding pictures and video

  • Two ways –

    • Select picture directly and [print screen], go to slide and [Copy] – resize as necessary.

    • Click [Insert] [Picture], [From File] or other selection.

    • This latter will also work for video.

Myths again l.jpg
Myths again

  • PowerPoint is difficult to use!

  • Animation (and other PP tools) are good!

  • You can never put too much information on a slide!

    • Let’s look at this one.

eLearning 2007


Information 1 l.jpg
Information (1)

  • We are taught that in presentations too much script on a slide is bad.

  • Does this hold for teaching?

  • Clever use of display and animation can cover this

Some ideas 1 using pp to teach and check transfer of learning l.jpg

Taught Example

Some Ideas – (1) Using PP To Teach And Check Transfer Of Learning.

  • F10.1.2.1

  • F = Masonry

  • 10 = Brick/block walling

  • .1 = Walls

  • .2 = Facework one side, thickness stated

  • .1= Vertical

  • Full description

  • F10.1.2.1 Walls, half brick in facings, PC sum £600 per 1,000, in stretcher bond in gauged mortar (1:4), pointing as work proceeds with a struck joint

  • Measured in square metres (sm or m2)

Classwork

What is the description for:-

Using PP To Teach And Check Transfer Of Learning.

  • M20.2.1.2 ?

  • M = Surface Finishes

  • 20 = Plastered/Rendered/Roughcast coatings

  • .2 = Ceilings

  • .1 = exceeding 300mm wide

  • .2 = Plasterboard, skim and set coat plaster

These answers are also provided via Moodle or by handouts (as some students do not use computers (still!))

Some ideas 2 incorporating animation and drawings l.jpg

Centre Line Girths.

First look at construction – centre line girth will only work for items on the centre line!

Both the internal and external skins of the wall are not on the centre line

Some ideas (2) – Incorporating Animation and Drawings

Centre line for internal skin

Centre line for external skin

Centre line overall construction

eLearning 2007


Incorporating animation and drawings l.jpg

Revision

Incorporating Animation and Drawings

  • Centre Line Girths (average of wall length)

  • Excavations, Bulking, Foundations, Brickwork & Blockwork below DPC

8,000mm

2x0.5x0.60 = 0.60

8.00 - 0.60 = 7.40m

6,000mm

2x0.5x0.60 = 0.60

6.00 - 0.60 = 5.40m

2x7.40 = 14.80

2x5.40 = 10.80

25.60

600mm

Animation and drawings l.jpg
Animation and drawings

  • The last five slides all used:-

    • Standard MS “Drawing” toolbar

      • To produce drawings

      • Identical to MS Word or Excel

    • Custom animation

      • To select and animate text/drawings

  • Did you note anything about the backgrounds?

  • Any changes to the myths?

eLearning 2007


Effects l.jpg
Effects

  • Animation and drawings covered

  • Pictures can be from anywhere

  • “Dimming” makes it easier to follow in class (above lines not dimmed)

  • This line is dimmed – have I used this technique?

eLearning 2007


Other ideas l.jpg
Other ideas.

  • Pose questions within PP, leave on board, class work through answers, then show.

  • Stop PP in mid slide to switch to something on SmartBoard, then return to pick up the thread.

  • Use short (3-4) minute film clips (you can insert DVD, MP3 etc.) to pick up a point.

eLearning 2007


Incorporating into lesson plans l.jpg
Incorporating into lesson plans

  • Can be a useful tool for lesson planning

    • Can work out lesson delivery through the PP presentation.

    • PP presentation can be uploaded directly to Oaklearn/Moodle.

  • Can improve lesson delivery

    • Great for practising lesson and timings

    • “Notes” or “Handout” pages can give extra info (but be careful that tutor prompts are not on there!)

eLearning 2007
