5 Bits of Advice About:  Designing good powerpoints

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. A white background is nothing to be ashamed of. Simple, clean and avoids fussing over themes etc.
  5. 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.
