REFLECTION 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. --------------------------------------------------------------- Student worksheet ------------------ -------------------------------------------- PowerPoint Slideshow Outline Name ____________________________________________________ 1st page: Title page: (What is the name of your product?
