Instructional Ideas

  1. When preparing an oral report to be given to a class, teachers can require students to create a presentation using this app. In this way, students will have a visual aid to display while presenting their report.
  2. Teachers can show students high-quality and low-quality presentations created with this app. As teachers show the presentations, they should facilitate a conversation about the strengths and weaknesses of the presentations. Sample topics to discuss are the use of images, text placement, wordiness, slide organization, and overall effect of the slide on viewers.
  3. In substitution or in addition to a traditional paper-and-pen report, teachers can require students to create a presentation using this app.
  4. As part of a jigsaw activity, teachers can break a main topic of study into multiple subtopics. Small groups of students can then be assigned a subtopic. Groups will then be given a specific amount of time to create a presentation using this app. When ready, each group will present their work to their classmates. Teachers should have groups who are not presenting take notes about the topic being presented. Additionally, they can offer feedback regarding the quality of the presentation.
