PowerPoint, Prezi or VideoScribe – Which is the best presentational tool?

PowerPoint, Prezi or VideoScribe – Which is the best presentational tool? | Edtech for Schools | Scoop.it

  Recently at Optimus we have decided to relook at how we conduct presentations. For years it was always the case that if you wanted to create a presentation – PowerPoint was always the answer. However like with everything else, technology has increased your choice of tools. As we are currently deciding between the 3 ourselves, we have decided to show you what we have found when comparing them.

It's the first time I've taught undergraduates.  I've found myself stripping slides to the core message and trying to find visuals that can communicate that message quickly, simply and yet - resonate.  There is nothing as tough as trying to unclutter the mind and focus on what really needs to be said - as opposed to 'making a point' or simply 'showing off'.  This presentation is about the art of visuals, clear design, and keeping it 'stupidly simple'.

Linda Dougherty's curator insight, October 12, 2013 10:14 AM

Have started showing students during Google presentation tutorials how to outline their presentations like they always do with those bulleted lines on the slides.  Then take those sentences, change them into titles, and put one title on each slide. Select one image per slide. If needed, add URL links. Add the works cited for the image in tiny print at the bottom of the slide. Move those outlined bulleted points to the note section or toss into a document to print out for a group presenetation.

 

No more slides crowded with text and 4 images! No more students sleeping in the classroom while their classmates read from the Smartboard.

While beautiful Powerpoint may seem like an oxymoron  this slideshow proves it is possible.

Why Anti-PowerPoint Arguments Are Invalid

Why Anti-PowerPoint Arguments Are Invalid | Edtech for Schools | Scoop.it
Some people are still vehemently anti-PowerPoint. This conversation has got old. Here, once and for all, m62 refutes the anti-PowerPoint arguments.
What’s important to remember though is that the fact that PowerPoint isn’t suitable for some presentations doesn’t mean that it is unsuitable for all presentations. When used well, and in an appropriate setting, PowerPoint provides a genuinely effective platform that enables presenters to communicate their messages effectively.
