Power Point in your classroom

Teachers and Educators use Power Point in hundreds of different ways.  Many educators use it simply as a visual aid and this is why Power Point was originally created.  Power Point took the place of other types of visual aids—hand-drawn or mechanically typeset slides, blackboards or whiteboards, or overhead projection. Some teachers use it simply as an interactive experience – with or without an interactive whiteboard.


I always try to include both features in my Power Points.  The beginning of most of Power Point Maniac’s Power points feature visual aids and clipart so the teacher can lecture and give the students information.  At the end of most Power Points is some sort of interactive activity. It may be something simple like a true/false quiz where the student comes to the board and touches the correct answer.  It could be a quiz where the students come to the board and circle the correct answer or picture. Here is a free example of what I am talking about! If you have never used Power Point interactively you should think about trying out some hyperlinks and quiz features.  What sort of ways do you like to use Power Point in your classroom?
