If your words or images are not on point, making them dance in color won’t make them relevant.–Edward Tufte
Read the following article: http://www.wired.com/wired/archive/11.09/ppt2.html Do you agree or disagree with any of the content? Why or why not? Remember, this was written in 2003, but PowerPoint presentations have not changed much during that time, the program has just become much easier to use. Look for at least two articles that give advice for good PowerPoint presentations. One could also be about what makes a presentation bad.
Copy the links into a word file and answer the questions below about those links:
- What relevant points did the article contain?
- What new information did you learn?
- What information did you disagree with or agree with and why?
- Which pieces of information will you keep in mind when creating your own presentation?
Your replies should be more than three sentences, and say more then “I agree.” Don’t repeat information they have given, instead, ask questions, explain why you agree or disagree. It’s a conversation, treat it as one.
