The Year 10 students have started work on some PowerPoint presentations as part of their ICT learning. We started this work by asking: what is PowerPoint and how can we use it?
Some new vocabulary was introduced, including slides, presentations and transitions.
Some of the students were then able to think about how PowerPoint might be used. Suggestions included school projects, making a photo album and helping to sell products in a business situation.
Our main task has been to create a PowerPoint presentation that helps to showcase a certain country. Each class member was given a free choice about the country they wanted to help to promote.
They were asked to research the culture, the capital city, music, art, food and a fun fact. We talked about the importance of adding images and good design into our presentations. This work will develop throughout the first half of the summer term.
