    Hi everyone

    Question 1: I’ve seen a bad presentation tonight ! When I was doing my presentation my mom showed me her presentation for her work during her presentation I actually yawned twice. She told me it was boring because its for adults to watch the presentation. She advised me always use clear fonts.

    Question 2: Not in year 5 because I used short texts. But in year 4 I had done some because I didn’t know it was boring until year 5.

    Question 3: To use short texts no bullet points no clip art and add interesting pictures to your PowerPoint.

    Question 4: I can improve my PowerPoint by not adding bullet points, Little text, interesting pictures and by not using clip art or any animations.

    Tammy 🙂

    Hi Everyone,

    Q1: I have seen lots of boring powerpoints and at all of them, the presenter reads the text he or she has written. It’s really boring plus I have to try to look interested which is really hard, especially when you’re dying for it to end.

    Q2: I have done a few bad presentations where I have read to an audience what I had written in the powerpoint, had used bonker backgrounds, lots of clipart, lots of sentences in one slide and bullet points.

    Q3: This slide is basically trying to teach you how to make a good powerpoint: What to do and not what to do.

    Q4: I can improve my powerpoints by:

    • Not using bonker backgrounds
    • No bullet points
    • Not saying “Thank you for watching” at the end of a presentation
    • Not using clipart

    I think that will really help me with my Presentation, my teacher last year also said that teachers made really bad Presentations with all these noises and they didn’t help a lot because people just spend their time on the animation, not the information. When I see those kinds of Presentations it is not very likely for the presentation to be good. I am not a computer freak so I spend my time on finding out other things.
