Begin simple then grow this powerpoint walks you through l.jpg
Begin Simple then Grow! This PowerPoint Walks You Through:

  • PowerPoint – insert movies

  • Photo Story – build movies from stills and create narrations and music

  • Moviemaker – build movies from other movies, add new narrations to instructional videos, edit clips

  • Adobe Premiere Elements – multiple track video creation, chromakey kids into videos

Slide3 l.jpg

PowerPoint – Always put video clips into your PowerPoint presentations for students. Students should put media into their own PowerPoint presentations, too.

Under menu, Insert > Moviesand Sounds

Before you build your PowerPoint, download your movies onto your computer.

Hall Davidson 11/07


Slide4 l.jpg

Go to where you have downloaded your movies. Keep your movies in folders by grade level, subject area, etc. It will make things easier!

These movies are from Discovery Education Streaming – a great place to get curriculum-based, standards linked media!

Note: If titles are too long, PowerPoint won’t play them. You might have to rename them to make them shorter.

Slide5 l.jpg

You will be asked whether you want the clip to play automatically or when the presenter clicks it. I prefer the contol of clicking on the video to start, stop, and discuss it. Sometimes, you make want the clip to start as soon as the slide opens.

You can place more than one movie on a slide. Play them in whatever order you choose.

Some Final Tips:

PowerPoints don’t have to be linear. Movies or slides can link from keywords or pictures, then return to the “home page”.

Click on Coral Reefs picture and you go to Coral Reefs slide where the video plays.

Click on “cell membrane” and the video plays on this slide. Same for cytoplasm, etc.

These PowerPoint examples are on the Discovery Education training disc.

Some Final Tips:

When you download your videos, only take the segments you need. Lessons are more effective with short video clips that relate to the lesson you are teaching. Add some hands-on activities that the video supports or introduces.

*Segments from Discovery video download page.

Video is more effective for teaching in short clips!
