I have a question for teachers who may visit this board. The question is about powerpoint. If you use powerpoint presentations in your classes, for notes (etc), how do you organize them? Why do I ask? I started out using them to put outlines up which students could follow. However what I found was that students copied the outlines and did not listen to me lecture. So, I started using more graphics and only putting up one outline point at a time. This way the students have to listen to me lecture and, I believe, they get better notes. After all a outline is not as detailed as the lecture. Anyway I am trying to find out a better way to use powerpoint. Unless I come up with something different I will just do what I have been doing. I thought about building some maps with moving graphics (arrows, etc). Any thoughts? O, and yes, I am just looking for ideas to steal...Hey at least I admit it. :laugh: .
