We’ve all probably experienced this when attending presentations, which is why this video is SO funny. I laugh every time I watch it! So how do we teach our students to give good presentations?
ReadWriteThink and PowerPoint in the Classroom both have excellent resources for teaching kids how to create effective and meaningful PowerPoint presentations. But we also have to remember with the emergence of Web 2.0 tools, there are now FREE alternatives to PowerPoint. Below are just a handful of some of the Web 2.0 Tools that students can use to create presentations:
They’re accessible from any computer, anywhere as long as one has internet connection
They can been shared with peers, students, parents, etc.
They allow for collaboration
They don’t require a flash drive
One important thing to consider when using any Web 2.0 Tool in the classroom is the terms and conditions of the tool. Lucie deLaBruere has put together an excellent resource for information addressing terms and conditions of Web 2.0 tools and privacy policies. Find it here.
What’s your favorite presentation tool? Do you have any student samples you can share?
