MICROSOFT POWERPOINT 2013 IN THE CLASSROOM

What teacher couldn't use help motivating students and keeping their interest? In this course, you'll learn how to create captivating lessons and attention-grabbing classroom presentations using Microsoft PowerPoint 2013.

First, you'll cover the basics of this MS Office program including creating slides, using templates, inserting text, changing background colors, creating WordArt titles, using SmartArt graphics, and adding slide transitions. Then you'll develop advanced skills such as inserting graphics, sound, video, custom animations, chart animations, timed transitions, and links.

You'll get step-by-step instructions for creating several different types of classroom presentations, including lectures and interactive narrations for your students' independent use at computer stations. You'll also see how PowerPoint helps you address different learning styles, making it much easier to reach every student. And you'll discover how to upload your presentation to a Web server, email a slide show, share a presentation in real time, and take your PowerPoint shows on the road. 
By the time you're done, you'll be an expert at using PowerPoint to add appeal to any lesson—and you'll even find out how you can help your students develop their own PowerPoint skills!

Note: To receive 25 hours of instruction in the State of Oregon, please ensure your school is eligible to issue professional development units, and that the course is approved by your professional learning coordinator.
