1. Anticipatory Set
- Focus/Transfer: Microsoft© PowerPoint has become the most popular program to create electronic presentations. Sometimes members of your audience will ask you for a copy of your presentation.
- Objective: Students will learn how to shae their electronic presentations using Microsoft© PowerPoint.
- Purpose: To comply with Computer Technology Standard # 6: Design, develop, publish, and present products (e.g. Web pages) using technology resources that demonstrate and communicate curriculum concepts to audiences inside and outside the classroom.

2. Instruction
Slide Show Timing:
- You can preset a certain amount of time for your slides (click the Transitions tab, click Options, set the number of seconds per slide, and click on Apply, or Apply to All), or you can move your presentation along manually. To practice for your presentation and give you an idea of how long it will be, you can rehearse your timing. Go to Slide Show Rehearse Timings.

Print Out Handouts:
- When you need your audience to have a handout of your slideshow, it is a good idea to print out the presentation a certain way. Click on File Print, and you’ll open the dialog box on the right. Next to: “Print What: Slides,” you can select how many slides you can print out per page. The one that allows your audience to write notes next to each slide (the most useful option!) is: Handouts (3 slides per page). Look at the insert at right.

Share it in Other Ways:
- If you promise someone that you will “email” your presentation to them, you can send your original PowerPoint presentation.ppt file. However, if you have personal notes within slides (the bottom of each slide allows you to type notes), you have copyrighted material, or just stuff you don’t want to share in original form, you can share pictures of your slides instead. Here is how you do it:
File > Save as Pictures. You will end up with a folder with one picture (.jpg format) for each slide.
File > Save as Movie. You will end up with a movie file (.mov) that will play each slide for a few seconds automatically. This movie file can be uploaded to YouTube, or social media.
File > Save as Web Page. You will end up with a Website that you can open with a web browser: Chrome, Safari, Firefox, etc.
You can also save your presentation as a .PDF (Portable Document Format) file. On the same Print menu above, click the PDF button and select: Save as PDF
