A Whole New Meaning of PowerPoint

I don’t think I have ever heard of the term PowerPoint poisoning before this class. I have sat through some boring presentations before, and I believe I am guilty of giving some boring presentations. I hope I never give another presentation the way in which I have been giving them for years. During class this week, we explored the different things that PowerPoint has to offer. There are so many things that a person can do with PowerPoint that I never knew how to do before. In class, we learned how easy it was to place an image on the screen that when you clicked on it, it would take you to another page. I found this extremely helpful when trying to go back to the home page. I always found that when I give a PowerPoint presentation, I want to go back in the presentation, but do not feel like flipping through all of the slides. This is an efficient use of time and a creative way to set up your presentation. I also really liked how we placed a certain page to a certain part of an image. This would be helpful as a teacher. Throughout the class, I was so excited to use something like this in a science lesson. For example, I would love doing this type of thing with PowerPoint when teaching about parts of the body. I could place a different slide to each part of the body, and when you click on the part of the body, it brings you to a new slide! I am excited to construct a PowerPoint with my partner and I am eager to try all of the new techniques we have learned in class!
