PowerPoint in the Classroom

PowerPoint in the Classroom

Launch Tool

This site is a tutorial designed to show K-12 teachers how to use PowerPoint in the classroom and includes a tutorial for how to teach students some basic PowerPoint features. You can learn about PowerPoint toolbars; how to save, move, and design layouts of your information; and how to incorporate animation, text, and sound for your presentations. This tutorial is part of a larger site created by actDEN, which currently offers seven software tutorials, produced in conjunction with Microsoft K-12 Education.

For Educators

Follow the guidelines provided in the tutorial about how to teach students about using PowerPoint. Once students understand how to use the individual toolbars, have them work together to create a few slides. Depending on the age level of your students, you can have students work together in small groups or you can make this a large group project. Once students have created their slides, they will enjoy presenting their slides! Invite an audience, perhaps other classes, the principal, and/or parents to come to their presentation.
