Presentation software offers a motivating and comprehensive way for students to demonstrate their learning by creating a slideshow. A slideshow presentation is a formal display of information organized onto slides to show or explain a concept to an audience. Students apply technology skills to arrange text, pictures, diagrams, graphs, sound, and video onto slides. Animations and transitions can be included to add interest to the show. A presentation can act as a visual aid during a lecture or speech. In Microsoft PowerPoint, the presentation file can also be viewed as a kiosk, video, web page, or handout.
Students can learn presentation skills by completing a variety of projects.
