11. Powerful Presentations
April 2, 2021.
11.Q1, 11.Q2, and 11.QGS3 have been updated.
Please note that the features of both the Google Slides and Microsoft 365 PowerPoint Quests, and the activities and tutorial videos are in the process of being updated. The new set of Quests will replace these in the next few months. We will post a note here when it is all completed. Thank you for your patience.
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.
After completing the first two Quests, you will have a choice to use Google Slides or Microsoft PowerPoint to complete the Quests for this Thing, and to create a presentation.
