  1. Using PowerPoint in Lessons Some Ideas, Myths and “Rules” - An Aid to Classroom Work eLearning 2007

  2. 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

  3. 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

  4. 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

  5. Revision – using PP (2) • Master View. • Go to [View], [Master], [Slide Master] • Should get this screen. eLearning 2007

  6. 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

  7. 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. eLearning 2007

  8. 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

  9. 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 eLearning 2007

  10. 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) eLearning 2007

  11. 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!)) eLearning 2007

  12. 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

  13. 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 eLearning 2007

  14. Incorporating Animation and Drawings 1 2 3 4 • SMM7 D20 and E05 for the method for taking off ground floors. • Hardcore D20.9.1.3.1 in m3. Internal dims. 8.00 Less walls 2 / 0.31 0.62 Must state in description thickness of hardcore and slabs Int dim 7.38 Ground floor– E05.5.1 measured in m3 Width same, 5.38 7.38 5.38 0.15 Hardcore filling to over site n/e 250mm thick. • For concrete, thickness is different 5.96 • Blinding (D20.13.2.2.1), compacting (D20.13.2.2), and DPM (J40.1), measured in m2 Concrete floor slab in 20kN concrete, tamped finish, n/e 250mm thick. 7.38 5.38 0.10 3.97 • These measurements can also be used for – screed, floor finish (carpets etc.), plasterboard, plaster and decorations to ceiling and insulation in roof space between joists, Blinding to hardcore base AND Compact AND Visqueen DPM ot underside of concrete base 7.38 5.38 39.70 eLearning 2007

  15. 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

  16. 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

  17. 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

  18. 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

  19. Summary • We looked at:- • A quick revision on PP basics • (Hopefully) making PP a useful tool • (Hopefully) giving you ideas to incorporate • (Hopefully) helping you think about lesson plans and PP • Dispelling some myths • Questions? eLearning 2007
