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?

There is no greater joy in the world than being a father.  Someone who looks up to me and thinks I’m always right.  He has this assurance that I’m always on his side, and always looking out for him. I love it.  My son has also heard me talk a good deal about teaching, my students, and watches me create  power points and lessons, and even practices making them himself on his “Smart Board”. He also notices my logo “the Power Point Maniac” dude.  The other day he was very interested in drawing him.  I could not believe what an amazing job he did so I took his picture…

Here is the PPT Maniac that is all over my site!

And HERE is my son holding his Power Point Maniac!!!

Great Job Wesley!
