Description of how to implement in the class: Teachers can use this basic
productivity tool to create presentations full of content. PowerPoints are useful
because you can show the whole class content at the same time; all students can see
this information on the board. PowerPoints can be shared amongst students and
teachers also. If a student is absent, a teacher can forward a PowerPoint to the
student so that student does not fall behind. It can be full of color and pictures for
visual learners or full of bullet points for note takers. You can add videos to
PowerPoints or turn your own PowerPoint into a narrative PowerPoint, creating your
own video.
In addition, students can also use this productivity tool in small group to build
knowledge of any content they are working on. PowerPoints are a great way to work
together as a class and students can create their own. This tool can be used to
produce better presentations in class.
Level of Technology Implementation (LoTi): This learning experience reaches
LoTi 1 Awareness. Students are not doing much interaction with PowerPoints
however, they are getting a lot of content using technology.
Description of the sample spreadsheet and graph/chart provided *: On this
PowerPoint, viewers can see a narrative PowerPoint showing different types of
shapes. Students will be asked what shape do they see. Then, the slide will give the
name of the shape.
Other comments about your proposed spreadsheet/graph/chart activity:
Students can be very creative with PowerPoints. This can be a fun tool to use in the
elementary classroom to make simple assignments more exciting, such as book
reports and creating study guides for assignments.
