The research shows the people remember the following:
· 10% of what you read READ
· 20% of what you hear HEAR
· 30% of what you see SEE
· 70% of what you see and hear SEE AND HEAR
Therefore, using visualization techniques with sound or multimedia is a good teaching technique. PowerPoint Stimulates student interest because students are attracted to a visual medium.

1. Why Use PowerPoint?
Why Use PowerPoint?
Consider the following benefits of well-designed presentation:
Help your students focus. Used to support a lecture, PowerPoint can provide a visual outline of your content and help students focus their attention on what is being said.
Make content visual. One of the best reasons to use PowerPoint is the ability it gives you to present content in a qualitatively different way through the use of graphics, charts, animation, and even video or audio. Try to think of ways to present ideas visually to help students understand concepts. PowerPoint comes with a library of clip art, diagrams, and graphs, or you can insert other image files. Do you ever spend time in class diagramming complex processes on the chalkboard? You can create a simple “animation” by drawing each step in the process on a different slide, then moving from slide to slide with a transition applied.
Manage your media. PowerPoint can also be used to manage or control a media-rich presentation that may be non-linear in nature. You can easily use PowerPoint to create links within a presentation or to other documents, to open applications, or to launch a browser and open Web sites.
Insert interactivity. To keep things interactive, intersperse some discussion questions or problems throughout the presentation.
Provide targeted illustrations. There are also other ways to use PowerPoint besides presenting an entire lecture with it. You might consider creating short, animated presentations to illustrate specific topics or processes that are hard to explain. Short presentation can be used during a lab or other group work session if you notice a number of students are having difficulty understanding something. You might also add interactivity to a lecture session
by presenting quiz questions in PowerPoint and animating the entry of answers.
How will the presentation be used?
Before creating a PowerPoint file, you should give some consideration to how it will be used. The following list describes some possible uses and the design implications of each:
Preview of lecture. Some instructors who provide copies of PowerPoint slides to students before a lecture have found that students arrive better prepared and with an overview of what will be covered. If this is your goal, be sure your slides are in outline format so that you may add comments, illustrations, and examples when you present, rather than simply reading off of the slides. Otherwise, your students may wonder why they need to attend class, if the entire lecture is available verbatim on hand-outs.
Printed for note taking. If you provide slides before a class meeting, some students will arrive with printouts to use for note-taking. Again, providing slides in outline format can help students focus their note taking without giving them too much information.
Projected in class for a presentation. If you're going to be presenting slides in a room, it's helpful to know some things about the environment, like the size of the room and whether it will be dark or lit. See the pages on design tips and text tips for suggestions on dealing with different situations.
Out of class review. If you want to provide a way for students to review your presentation later or if they missed class, you may want to consider providing additional information as Notes. An outline presentation usually provides very limited value to someone who has not heard you fill in the details.
Viewed on line. If you intend to deliver your presentation on a Web site, there are several decisions you need to make, such as whether or not to include audio, which features of the presentation must be maintained (for example, animation), and what your students need to see. The section on distributing a presentation explains the benefits and limitations of different distribution options.
Design tips for text
Don’t overload slides! One of the biggest design mistakes made is including too much text on a presentation slide.
The purpose of a slide in a presentation should be to give your audience the most important points of information. The purpose of a slide should NOT be to give detailed information or complete sentences, nor should a slide be used as a set of lecture notes for the instructor. If you need to deliver a lot of text content, consider using Notes Pages or another form of document handout.
Use the Rule of Sixes. According to the “rule of sixes” effective presentation slides should include no more than six bullets per slide and no more than six words per line. These, of course, are rules of thumb, but if your slides routinely have ten bullets or your font size falls below 18 point, your presentation is probably not as effective as it could be.
Choose fonts for legibility. San serif fonts, like Ariel and Helvetica, read better on screen. Don't use a font size smaller than 18 point.
Try the floor test. The “floor test” is an informal way to check the readability of slides. Print out a slide page and place it on the floor at your feet. Is everything legible? Does each point stand out?
Use text formatting to support information hierarchy. Format text consistently from slide to slide and in a way that supports the hierarchy of your information. For example, slide titles should be in the largest font used. Sub-bullets should be in a smaller font size than main bullets
Which of the following is NOT a benefit of a well-designed presentation?
Helping your students focus
Teaching students PowerPoint
Providing targeted illustrations
Which is the best way to present ideas visually to students to help them learn?
Using PowerPoint library of clip art
Using PowerPoint diagrams and graphs
Using PowerPoint tables
All of the above
What should a PowerPoint presentation not be?
Projected in class for a presentation
A substitute for a "live" lecture
Printed for note taking
Viewed on line
If you intend to deliver your presentation on a Web site, which of the following is not a decision you need to make?
whether or not to include audio
which features of the presentation to maintain (for example, animation)
what your students need to see
the number of slides your presentation has
A Power Point animation should NOT provide detailed information, complete sentences, or be used as lecture notes for the instructor.
A floor test is?
A test to see how clearly you can see the information on a printed slide that was placed on the floor.
A test that measures the strength and durability of the floor beneath you.
A test that measures the cleanliness of the floor.
A test to see if you can walk the floor in a straight line.
According to the Rule of Sixes, an effective presentation slide should:
Not include more than six slides per presentation.
Include as much information as possible in six minutes.
Not include more than six bullets per slide or six words per line.
All of the above.
For legibility, what should be taken into account when creating slides:
Using fonts that read better on screen.
Not using fonts that are below 18 points.
Using sans serif fonts like Arial and Helvetica.
All of the above.
For best teaching results, what should one not do when creating slides:
Choose fonts for legibility
Try the Floor test
Use the rule of sixes
Using text formatting to support information hierarchy
