Add Voice Over to PowerPoint Presentations in 5 Easy Steps | Emerging Education Technology

Add Voice Over to PowerPoint Presentations in 5 Easy Steps | Emerging Education Technology | Creative teaching and learning | Scoop.it

"PowerPoint is a piece of software that is pretty easy to use, but at the same time has many features that can elevate your presentations. One such function is the easy ability to supplement a presentation with voice-over (or other audio). Adding your voice to PowerPoint slides is a simple process to accomplish, and doing so can turn a presentation from a plain set of slides into a self-contained instructional asset that stands alone and can be used by students to self-teach. This can be a great way to test the waters with flipped content delivery."

Beth Dichter's curator insight, July 27, 4:21 PM

Do you teach elementary or middle school? Are you looking for experiences for your students that will provide them the opportunity to travel to and learn the planets, the White House, national parks and much more?

This post provides links to six websites that provide virtual field trips. The majority of the trips are geared to students from grades 3 - 8, but check them out. You may find that they are great for your class.

Consider visiting Colonial Williamsburg, check out Global Trek from Scholastic where you can design a "fake" trip by visiting many places in the world and much more.

From the article:  "The pilot study led by the Bok Center for Teaching and Learning and released today after months of checks and balances showed that students responded most to lesson structure and execution, placed a premium on person-to-person interaction, and found redundancies between in-class and online instruction."  Worth reading if you are involved in blended learning design, development or deployment.
