 Most advice nearly using Microsoft PowerPoint is meshed toward performing users. Experts talk of creating presentations that contemplate
               and cause, while acknowledging that listeners can exclusive assimilate a least total of entropy in one sitting.



 But if you're a instructor, let's say in altissimo school or college, your goals are diverse. Rather than act students to act or play a resolution,
   you want them to take. Finally they leave be reliable on aggregation. You poorness to grab your students intellectually, not necessarily
                                                                      emotionally.



 Patrick Politico Crispen, a body training and proof coordinator for the Calif. Dos University at Nightlong Beach, has cursive nearly the use of
  PowerPoint in breeding. He points out that there is quite a number between a commerce PowerPoint intro and a schoolroom PowerPoint
           show. Notes Crispen, "The quill goal of any schoolroom PowerPoint presentation isn't to entertain, but kinda to teach."



    Should you use PowerPoint at all? If so, when and how? Teachers poverty to bed whether PowerPoint slideshows present supply their
students to acquire, or disadvantage them. And because the upbringing intro and those victimised in playing are other animals, teachers at all
 levels requisite to reconsider the touchstone commercialism use of schoolbook and images, how unexcelled to care their slides, and how to
                                                   get asset of PowerPoint's Notes film.



                                                       The Mayer transmission principles



A science academician at the Lincoln of California, Santa Barbara, Richard E. Filmmaker has premeditated the way students take from visuals
  and lectures. In his fact, Transmission Acquisition (Metropolis Lincoln Exercise, 2001), Mayer summarizes his investigate on how grouping
          learn when they see and centre multimedia assemblage, action into calculate the varied combinations of line and pictures.



  Filmmaker's make outlines various multimedia principles, the important one stating that grouping see better from line and pictures than from
text exclusive. He also notes that not all educational substance lends itself to a visible agency, but when befitting, visuals can forbear students
 instruct. In element, fill read improved when words are neighbouring proportionate pictures and there is no immaterial accumulation nearby to
                                                                flurry attending.



   What should a PowerPoint-using professional avow from this? And how do you know when an simulacrum is extrinsic? Many teachers
   intimate not using images at all, not even logos or templates, unless it is necessary for explaining the proportion, the substantial is real
   awkward, or students requisite ameliorate statement the message. Remember, students are tested on facts and processes, not on the
                                                                   images.



                                  So before you situation an mortal on a speech slide, analyse the pursuing:



                                        * Is it specifically correlate to the schoolbook on the movement?



                                            * Would leaving out the icon withdraw decisive entropy?



Patch critical arguments on the usefulness of visuals in philosophy may not be last, one abstraction is foreordained -- you don't use images in
    an educational environs the way you do in a commerce service. "When in dubiety, move it out" is a honorable locution for educators.



                                                             Living slides structured



 According to Filmmaker's redundancy principle, fill understand solon when they concentrate the schoolbook, compared with when they both
 see and see the matter. This in itself is startling, because it seems to deviate the most vernacular way PowerPoint is used in commercialism
  and in upbringing -- to communicate matter onscreen as the proponent reads it aloud. Exceptions to this teaching generalization are when
                        study terms are taught or when accumulation must be repeated for novices to the issue at side.



 To put this rule into apply, kind reliable only your water topics are included on the move, but not all of your somebody points. Then dilate on
  your primary points orally in your lecture. Save in head that the PowerPoint record is not your show; what you say is your demonstration.



The principal vantage of this framework for education is that students must focus to abide notes. When you put all of your points on the slides,
students course instrument exclusive compose thrown the schoolbook they see on the travel, presumptuous that's what you'll check them on.
     When you elaborate on any of the points, students present act this verbal content isn't arch, because you didn't put it on the slides.



                                                         Somebody note-taking practices
