Session Objectives

In this session we will explore 5 different types of digital presentation tools that will enhance instruction as we move away from PowerPoint. These will include Prezi, Powtoon, Smore, Thinglink, and Glogster. You will leave this session prepared to move beyond Powerpoint with digital presentations that can created by both teacher and student.

Why do I need to know this? Does this really apply to my grade level??

Let's take a look at the standards:

2nd grade: Integrate and evaluate content presented in diverse media and formats, including visually and quantitatively, as well as in words.*

3rd grade: Integrate and evaluate information presented in diverse media and formats, including visually, quantitatively, and orally. Make strategic use of digital media and visual displays of data to express information and enhance understanding of presentations.

4th grade: Interpret information presented visually, orally, or quantitatively (e.g., in charts, graphs, diagrams, time lines, animations, or interactive elements on Web pages) and explain how the information contributes to an understanding of the text in which it appears.

5th grade: Report on a topic or text or present an opinion, sequencing ideas logically and using appropriate facts and relevant, descriptive details to support main ideas or themes; speak clearly at an understandable pace. Include multimedia components (e.g., graphics, sound) and visual displays in presentations when appropriate to enhance the development of main ideas or themes.

6th grade: . Integrate information presented in different media or formats (e.g., visually, quantitatively) as well as in words to develop a coherent understanding of a topic or issue. Make strategic use of digital media and visual displays of data to express information and enhance understanding of presentations.

7th grade: Analyze the main ideas and supporting details presented in diverse media and formats (e.g., visually,quantitatively, orally) and explain how the ideas clarify a topic, text, or issue under study.

8th grade: Evaluate the advantages and disadvantages of using different mediums (e.g., print or digital text, video,multimedia) to present a particular topic or text.

9th & 10th grade: Make strategic use of digital media and visual displays of data to express information and enhance understanding of presentations. Integrate multiple sources of information presented in diverse media or formats (e.g., visually, quantitatively,orally) evaluating the credibility and accuracy of each source.

11th & 12th grade: Integrate and evaluate multiple sources of information presented in different media or formats (e.g., visually, quantitatively) as well as in words in order to address a question or solve a problem. Integrate multiple sources of information presented in diverse formats and media (e.g., visually, quantitatively,
