What Makes a Good Presentation?

How to Use Powerpoint to Get Your Message Across

a word of note
A word of note
  • This presentation is designed as a smorgasbord of what is available online for making good presentations in PowerPoint.
  • It is meant to help you make your Consumerism presentation better, not be a stand-alone lecture of what I think you should do.
  • It is published on the wiki to allow you to use the video links at your own pace and on your own time. ie during computer time when working on your PowerPoint.
  • It is assumed that you have some understanding of the presentation software PowerPoint. If not, come see me after school.
making a presentation takes brains
Making a Presentation Takes Brains
  • Imagine sitting in a lecture hall while slide after slide gets put up and the speaker drones on. You’d be bored after 10 slides
  • Your Consumerism message might suffer the same fate, unless you remember a few things.
  • Number 1: Keep your audience interested and they will keep reading. Bore them and they will tune out your message.
  • Number 2: Your audience isn’t stupid, they will not be dazzled by bells and whistles if the content is not there. Junk with fancy paint is still junk!
you need to think before you start
You need to think before you start
  • A few key questions
  • What message do I want my audience to understand?
  • How will they best understand it? Pictures? Text? Sound? A combination?
  • What do I want my audience to do during the presentation? Read? Listen? Think?
  • What do I want them to take away from my presentation?

before what consider how
Before What, Consider How
  • Do not cram all your information into every slide.
  • Do not overdo the amount of information in your presentation. Less is More
  • Do not cram more than three or four key points you want your audience to remember
  • If you are going to use data and graphs, make them as simple to understand as possible and clearly labeled. Make sure the pictures help you make your point, not take attention away from it.
more about the how
More About the How
  • If you are going to use transitions, use the same one between every slide
  • Colours? Keep it easy on the eyes. Blue background with yellow writing gives the best contrast
  • Font size – remember, when you make it your eyes are less than 1m away. When your audience sees it, they are more than 1m away from the screen

content
Content?
  • Based on what you have seen here, how will you translate what you have researched and discussed into a good presentation?
  • You have some the remaining class time to determine how you will approach this in our next class. Please have a loose organizational plan for next class. This will require some planning at home too (ie: homework)
