ICTCM #10 Westpoint and Quality Presentations


Westpoint had a librarian who spoke about how she helps students make the best projects.

  • WP teachers talk about how to present accurately and effectively (this is a substantial Powerpoint. Nearly every slide seemed relevant. Some things were mathematical- watch your scale, only use pie charts if you have the same base. Some was visual- no spaghetti graphs,no exploded pie charts, don’t use pie charts just to compare sizes of pieces.
  • They talk about copyright and Creative Commons licensing
  • They have examples of students who have made lots of presentation errors. They use these to show students what happens if you do not draft and revise. The slides seem to work in preventing similar errors.
