iPads in Education (elementary)

Introduction to iPads in elementary classrooms. (Presented 2/20/12)

Effective presentations: (Introduction and Part 1: Fail)

You sit in the audience.  The presenter is introduced, and the PowerPoint slideshow advances past the initial slide.

And immediately you realize that this presentation doesn’t require a presenter at all.  You have all of the information you need to know right there on the screen, on that slide filled with text.  You know the slides that follow will also be an article (a book, even!), divided up among the slides, waiting to be read aloud by the presenter.

Been there?  Done that?

Whether you’ve been part of the audience or the presenter (with good information and grand intentions, mind you), I hope you’ll find this series of posts on “effective presentations” helpful.

Have you ever heard of “death by PowerPoint?”  It’s time to use PowerPoint for effective, engaging, and purposeful presentations.

Let’s get started!

Part 1:  Fail.

Have you seen sites like FailBlog?  You’ll find pictures and videos of people (or things) that fail at what they are supposed to do.

For example:

epic fail photos - Deal FAIL

Before we start talking about what makes an effective presentation, let’s share some PowerPoint FAILS

Are you inspired by these?  Do you find these engaging?

Think about what makes these slides ineffective…
Check back soon- there’s more to come!
