I downloaded these from the internet.
NOTICE HOW ATTENTIVE THE AUDIENCE IS IN THESE PHOTOS
The photo at right and the photo above use the same PowerPoint template, The problem comes when students use a lacy, dainty template for a presentation on Volcanoes!
I wanted a few shots from my school, so I took a photo of students while another teacher was using my room for PowerPoint presentations.
Subsequent slides are also loaded with bullet points and long sentences.
Once students grasp the ease with which they can construct compelling, professional-looking reports and presentations they will have a renewed energy for presentations and put more effort into their productions. Truly.
Students can produce visual presentations that demonstrate depth of knowledge in the subject content covered, and the ability to create an effective, creative presentation package.
Spark is great for building the scaffolding students will need if they should pursue video production with Adobe Premiere Pro.
Student Presentations that work
At right is the first page of the Tecumseh PowerPoint presentation done on Adobe Spark Page. A vast improvement over the original slide (below).
Spark Page has a feature called GLIDESHOW which features a scrolling panel on the left that can contain photos, links, and videos – a perfect solution instead of endless bullet points.
THEMES determine the color scheme, text styles and sizes, removing unnecessary and often disastrous style choices by students.
