Please note that the Quests for Microsoft 365 PowerPoint Quests, activities and tutorial videos are in the process of being updated (summer 2021)
Tired of writing all the time? Would you like to express yourself through a presentation instead? During these Quests you are going to learn how to present your ideas creatively through Google Slides or Microsoft PowerPoint.
When you have completed this Thing you will:
know how to use online presentation tools [Empowered Learner]
understand the features and attributes of effective presentations [Creative Communicator]
know how to use a variety of media to create and collaborate on an effective presentation [Global Collaborator]
While this Thing can be done by an individual student, the objective is to focus on working with a partner or small group to create a presentation. This Quest begins with a planning and designing process in preparation for learning to use and apply different effects, features and designs for an effective presentation.
This Quest focuses on tips for creating an effective presentation research about the chosen topic, and gathering media resources.
