This Learning Experience is a supplement to the learning unit “Who Wants To Be A Millionaire”.

their product idea to a company to buy and produce. Students will use Microsoft PowerPoint to
develop an advertising campaign to be presented to an audience representing a fictitious
                              CONNECTION TO STANDARDS

MST #5 Students will apply technological knowledge and skills to design, construct, use and
evaluate products and systems to satisfy human and environmental needs
Key Idea #3: Computers, as tools for design, modeling, information processing,
communication, and system control, have greatly increased human productivity and knowledge.
♦ Students will use the computer as a tool for generating and drawing ideas.

                                  ESSENTIAL QUESTION
    1.      Why are companies always looking for new products?
    2.      What are some new products or changes in products from the past five years?
    3.      How do you think a company gets new ideas?

                (Chronologically ordered description of all teacher & student activities and interactions.)

Day 1: Students will have already made a product from the “Who Wants to be a Millionaire”
learning unit. They will take their idea and make an outline for a PowerPoint slide show.
Days 2-4: After the student’s outline for the teacher has been approved, they will work in the
computer lab on their PowerPoint slide show. Students will have a mockup already made of their
product idea from the “Who Wants to be a Millionaire” project. They will use the digital camera
to take a picture of their mockup and insert into their PowerPoint slide show.
Day 5: Students will pretend that the class and the Teacher represent a large company looking
for new product ideas. They will be salesman for their idea presenting a PowerPoint slide show
of their product. Using their PowerPoint slide show they will try to convince us to purchase their
product idea for production and sales of the product.

Learning disabled students should have no problems with this learning experience. Teachers may
allow for extra time to do the activity. Advanced or gifted students may be available when
finished to assist other students.

                                           TIME REQUIRED
This project should take approximately 5 days. 4 of the days will be in the computer lab. One
day in the classroom will be for students to prepare an outline for their PowerPoint presentation.

Students will use the computer lab and classroom. Students will have available, a computer with
Microsoft PowerPoint installed. When they are ready to do their presentation, they will use a
computer hooked to a large monitor for public viewing. Students will learn to use a digital
camera and import their picture into PowerPoint.

                     (Include samples of student work showing different levels of performance.)

This learning experience was developed in order for students to apply their knowledge of the use
of Microsoft PowerPoint in a real life situation. Students could see how businesses would use
this software in way to make a public presentation. The students enjoyed the project very much.
I would make sure that the Learning Unit “Who Wants To Be A Millionaire” was done first and
then this project. It would make more sense to them and they would have a product idea and
mockup already to use with this software. I would require that all students use the digital camera
to take a picture of their mockup and put in their PowerPoint presentation. Some students took
pictures off the Internet to represent their product idea, but the actual photo of their mockup was a
better representation of their product idea.
