Powerpoint Presentation Skills

Powerpoint is a great tool to use when you have to give a formal presentation in the classroom - but you don't want to make it boring or too busy!!!

  • Don't make another boring old presentation - grab the viewers attention!

  • Make it interesting – graphs and diagrams always help but DO NOT overdo the animation effects

  • Do not clutter the page – attention should be on the speaker not the slide

  • Be clear and concise with your language

  • Do not write paragraphs

  • Address only 1 concept per page

  • Stick to only 5 bullet points per page

  • Do not read the bullet points directly from the page – you should be able to talk your content using different language

  • It is recommended to spend 4-5 minutes talking PER SLIDE

  • Stick with one color palate throughout!
