5 Bits of Advice About: Designing good powerpoints
- Piling endless images on every slide in a Powerpoint will take a long time, make the presentation over-busy and won’t add much, if anything, to the learning.
- Font choice should be based on readability. Choose a font that is going to be easy to read even for a kid sitting at the back of the classroom.
- The clearer you make what you want the students to do, the easier it will be for them to do it. Give them sentence starters, or examples to work from.
- A white background is nothing to be ashamed of. Simple, clean and avoids fussing over themes etc.
- Try to establish conventions that means students will know what to do automatically. e.g. have a consistent slide design for exam questions with a timer on it.
