As a teacher, let’s say in high school or college, your goals are to guide your student to learn. According to Patrick Douglas Crispen, a faculty training and support coordinator for the California State University at Long Beach, the primary goal of any classroom PowerPoint presentation isn’t to entertain, but rather to teach.

PowerPoint principles for education

1 Choose a suitable picture

According to a professor, Santa Barbara, Richard E. Mayer, who has studied the way students learn from visuals and lectures, people learn better from words and pictures than from words alone. However, pictures which are not near corresponding words are extremely likely to distract people’s attention.

So before you insert an image on a lecture slide, you should carefully consider the following:

  • Is it specifically related to the text on the slide?
  • Would leaving out the image remove crucial information?
  • Only in that way can you make an efficient education presentation and eventually achieve your goal.

    2 Keep slides organized

    According to Mayer’s redundancy principle, people understand more when they hear the text, compared with when they both hear and see the text. To put this principle into practice, please make sure only your main topics are included on the slide. And then elaborate on your main points orally in your lecture. Then, it is more possibly for students to understand and remember what you want to teach. And only in that way can you really improve the learning efficiency of your students.
