  14. Gagne’s 9 Events ofInstruction • Gain Attention • Inform Learners of Objectives • Stimulate Recall of Prior Learning • Present the Content • Provide “Learning Guidance” • Elicit Performance (Practice) • Provide Feedback • Assess Performance • Enhance Retention and Transfer to the Job

  15. Welcome to ITC’sPowerPoint Workshop What’s wrong with this?

  16. Welcome to ITC’sPowerPoint Workshop How can we fix this? Let’s add some color.

  17. Welcome to ITC’sPowerPoint Workshop Better, but we still need some improvement. We need some tips on creating a theme.

  18. Themes:Tying It All Together • Themes unify a presentation • Choose a theme that supports the content • Choose an appropriate color or color scheme

  19. Themes:Tying It All Together • Color contrasts can emphasize a point. • Colors elicit emotions and set the presentation’s tone • Beware of certain colors and combinations

  20. Implementing a Theme • A uniform background can also create a cohesive design. • Apply a background by right-clicking on the slide background and selecting Background from the menu that appears. • You can select a color or image and apply it to as many slides as you like.

  21. Welcome to ITC’sPowerPoint Workshop Great! Now, how can we apply this to the rest of our presentation? Let’s create a Master Slide.

  22. Implementing a Theme • Let’s create a Master Slide -- a single layout that can be applied to the entire presentation for a more unified look. • To do this, go to Format then Slide Design or Slide Layout

  23. Implementing a Theme • Pick a design that suits your needs, or create your own custom design and select the Apply to Selected Slides option. • To add more slides, go to Insert > New Slide

  24. Welcome to ITC’sPowerPoint Workshop Now, how can we get the students’ attention? Let’s consult Gagne’s 9 Steps for suggestions.

  25. Gain Attention • State an Interesting Fact • Pose a Question • Use an Interesting Sound, Videoor Image • Maintain Attention ThroughVisual Interest and GoodPresentation Skills • Don’t Just Read Slides

  26. Welcome to ITC’sPowerPoint Workshop Let’s add a movie clip as an attention grabber.

  27. Adding Movie Clips • To add movie clips, select Insert > Movies and Sounds > Movie from File • Select the file you wish to add. • Try adding the provided file.

  28. Adding Movie Clips • Modify the movie’s properties by right-clicking the movie clip and selecting Edit Movie Object • Note: Only Quicktime files will play on a Mac version of PowerPoint while WMVs work best for PCs.

  29. Welcome to ITC’sPowerPoint Workshop That wasn’t so difficult. Let’s add a sound for good measure.

  30. Adding Sounds • To add sounds, select Insert > Movies and Sounds > Sound from File or Sound from Clip Organizer • Select the file you wish to add

  31. Adding Sounds • The Sound’s properties can be modified by right-clicking the sound icon. • The sound can be set to play automatically or on a mouse click.

  32. Welcome to ITC’sPowerPoint Workshop Now, on to step 2.

  33. Inform Learner of Objectives • What Topics Will Be Covered? • What Will the Students Learn? • Highlight Main Ideas • Use Visuals If Possible • Use Clear Organization

  34. Organizing Information • Bullet points are a great way to organize information. • Recall the earlier example of good organization. • How can youcreate such a list?

  35. Bullet Points • To create a numbered list or a list with bullet points, highlight the desired text and click either of these icons. • Press Enter or Returntoget a new number or bullet point. • To edit the list settings, either go to Format then Bullets and Numbering or right-click the list and select Bullets and Numbering from the box that appears.

  36. Organizing Information • Create a list of objectives • Make them clear and concise • Highlight main ideas • Think beyond lists and use media

  37. Recall Prior Knowledge • Before we begin the lesson, we should urge students to recall prior knowledge.

  38. Recall Prior Knowledge • Ask Questions • Gauge Students’ Knowledge Levels • Prepare for Lesson • Get Students to Think

  39. Recall Prior Knowledge • Example: • When did you last use PowerPoint? • Why did you use it? • Was it effective? • What could you do differently?

  40. Present Material Now, we’re ready to present the lesson material.

  41. Present Material • Organize Material • Highlight Main Ideas • Repeat Important Information • Encourage Thinking, Not Mindless Note Taking

  42. Present Material • Example: • With PowerPoint, you can: • Organize ideas • Include multimedia • Access the internet

  43. Provide Guided Learning • Use Multimedia • Learning Is Enhanced ThroughVisual Media • Show Me

  44. Implementing Guided Learning • Example: • Add clipart or your own images to illustrate your point. • How do we add images?

  45. Adding Images Images used in the PowerPoint should be very visible of relatively high quality. If it looks bad on a monitor, it will look even worse when blown up by a projector. VS.

  46. Adding Images • To add an image to a slide, go to the Insert menu and select Picture • From that menu, you can add whatever graphical content you choose.

  47. Adding Images • To edit an image, click it and drag the small, circular handles to adjust size or rotation.

  48. Adding Images • For advanced editing features, right-click on the object and select Format Picture • This feature can also be accessed by double-clicking the image

  49. Implementing Guided Learning • Example: • Visuals add varietyand interest to presentations • Visuals improveretention and understanding
