In today’s technological world, you know how important it is for students to use computers on a regular basis. The challenge is to use technology effectively to enhance learning. Incorporating technology into your daily lessons and activities is a practical way to teach students that computer skills are important for more than just surfing the Internet. In particular, the PowerPoint is the most important tool that more and more teachers used in there practical teaching in order to make insightful visual experience and make student focused!
A slide show can present and illustrate an event in history, or explain a geometric proof in math. It can illuminate an oral book report, or report the results of a science experiment. Teachers use slide shows as backdrops to their lectures, students use them to deliver reports, and schools use them to show the community what they are doing. A slide show can be a valuable tool for teaching, sharing and learning.
I was always interested in helping students make real-world connections in project-based curriculum. With the increased availability of computer technology and Internet resources, I saw an even greater avenue for instruction.
How can we change this terrible situation? Do you have a suggestion for educators?
We think that good teachers will always be good teachers no matter whether they use PowerPoint or not — are they able to keep students’ attention? I use PowerPoint in all my classes and students often tell me how interesting the classes are. It’s the PowerPoint that makes students bored, In my personal experience, I create a PowerPoint for my lesson plain with a powerful assistant which is PowerPoint to video converter software, it is a nice aid that I can create attractive Presentation and convert PowerPoint to video format, then I can play it on PC, and upload it to teaching website for download! It is a nice ideal!
It will help you create captivating and attention-grabbing classroom presentations using Microsoft PowerPoint.

You’ll be able to publish your presentation on a school Web site or even take your PowerPoint shows on the road. You’ll also be able to create presentations filled with scanned drawings created by your students or digital photograph slide shows. This class will assist you in learning these skills.
By using PowerPoint to video tool to create your presentation, you can maintain a record of the material that you cover during the school year. Students who miss lesson topics, or have difficulty understanding them, can easily revisit them later, by adding intuitive audio and animation to make the students understood and accepted more efficiently. Of course, there are plenty of other factors outside of multimedia presentations that affect student learning. It’s safe to say a teacher’s skills are still more important than the visual method used to deliver the course’s curriculum. Nevertheless, we can all use a little help with our teaching, and a PowerPoint slideshow that enhances, rather than detracts from or slows down, the learning process is all to the good.
In working with teachers to develop curriculum for the World Wide Web, I have organized my instructional approach into five basic phases: planning, research, development, refinement, and implementation. These five areas work as organizational frameworks for instruction and learning, curriculum development and implementation, student progress and presentation. It also frames the use of computer technology tools with a specific purpose. The goal is not solely to learn how to make a concept map with great pictures or to develop an attractive Web site, but to imbed the use of educational technology within a task. In this way, the tools enhance and facilitate the learning process. This gives the learner a reason to use the application, and along the way, the learner understands how the application works.
By teaching your students to explore how different features of a given technology can help them succeed, you can make using technology a consistent and easy part of your students’ learning experience. We should continuously explore the advanced teaching method to help our educators and student make studying more effectively and perfectly.
