The "Attention Method" for Effective PowerPoint Presentations

The "Attention Method" for Effective PowerPoint Presentations | PowerPoint for Video | Scoop.it
This is a method of constructing effective PowerPoint presentations in a way that helps your audience pay attention to you and understand your ideas more fully. With Attention Method, the slides are designed to add power, emphasis, and deeper understanding to your well-scripted speech. You flip slides often so that, at any given time, your slides always support only what you're saying and contain no distracting information. Instead of one slide with several bullets, each slide should contain one idea expressed in vibrant images and minimalistic text.

If you think too long about internet copyright, you'll be up banging your head against a wall all night.
Lon Naylor's insight:

Almost everyday I get asked, "Can I use this picture, or this video?"

Unfortunately, I CANNOT give an answer...literally. I can't dispense legal advice and these are clearly legal questions.

Here's some good food for thought when thinking about the legal mess that is copyright law on the internet today and some things to watch out for.

Bad PowerPoint design may be just as detrimental to your presentation as smelling like a horse. When you have poorly designed slides, a few things happen: your professionalism is questioned (because you essentially tell the people looking at your PowerPoint that you don't know how to create professional work); your audience members get distracted as they toggle between looking at your bad design and listen to what you're actually saying (and, in the end, they don't really ingest either); and you
