I’m sitting in an A3WP tech workshop brainstorming with our summer institute teachers about what makes a PowerPoint presentation ineffective, boring, confusing and/or painful to sit through.
Here are some of our thoughts:
- Too much writing on a slide
- Horrid color combinations
- Background sounds
- Spelling and grammar errors
- Too many objects or words flying in
Don McMillan’s MySpace video does a great job of summing up bad PowerPoints –
